Thank you for all the work you've put in the Guixsd release.  I have
used guix on top of a Debian distribution for some time, but with the
release I wanted to try and install it on its own.

I'm trying to install guix on my system.  I have the 1.0.1 patch, but I
had the same problem with 1.0.0.

I already have a debian system with an encrypted drive, and I would like
to erase it with an encrypted Guix system with a separate /home partition.

I have chosen my language (français).

My location (France).

I have chosen the graphical installer.

I have chosen my timezone (Europe / Paris).

I have chosen my keyboard (Français / Français (sans touche morte Sun):
this one seems to be correct but I don't have much information.  It
would be awesome if I could test it in a text box).

I have chosen the guided installation with encryption.

I have chosen my hard drive, the only option:
ATA WDC WD15EARS-60M (scsi) /dev/sda 1500 GB gpt

I have chosen the option to have a separate /home.

And then I get the exception.  I copy it from another keyboard, but I
hope that I copied it correctly.

If you need more information, please tell me.  I can retry the
installation to help debugging that, but I need simple instructions :)
