Hey Tim,

Nice you found a work-around. I think I already hit this issue myself
without being able to reproduce it. Do you remember what was the
previous GPT layout of your drive? Maybe the distribution previously
installed?

Thanks,

Mathieu

I did run into a similar issue and it turned out to be me selecting
/dev/sr0 in the device selection dialog instead of the actual VM disk.

I successfully installed GNU Guix.

The work around I used for this bug is I simply ran `sudo dd
if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda`. Basically, I think the existence of an old
GPT partition table is causing problems on a new install though I'm not
sure why.

Unfortunately, this computer is my daily driver and I need it working so
I can't run any more tests at this time.

I used automatic partitioning this time. But it failed with an exception when I had previously tried manual partitioning as well. Though I believe it was a different error then.

Hello,

Thanks for the bug report and sorry for the inconvenience.

> In gnu/system/uuid.scm:
> =C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0317:2 18 (uuid->string . _)

It looks like the UUID extraction of an "ext4" partition failed. Did you
use automatic or manual partitioning?

Thanks,

Mathieu
