Hi Giovanni,

Here's the content of /mnt/etc/config.scm:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;; This is an operating system configuration generated
;; by the graphical installer.

(use-modules (gnu))
(use-service-modules desktop networking ssh xorg)

  (locale "en_US.utf8")
  (timezone "Europe/Stockholm")
  (keyboard-layout (keyboard-layout "fr" "mac"))
      (bootloader grub-efi-bootloader)
      (target "/boot/efi")
      (keyboard-layout keyboard-layout)))
    (list (mapped-device
              (uuid "e613d30e-c46f-4cb3-8bde-409009be5e2e"))
            (target "cryptroot")
            (type luks-device-mapping))))
    (cons* (file-system
             (mount-point "/boot/efi")
             (device (uuid "2E91-4865" 'fat32))
             (type "vfat"))
             (mount-point "/")
             (device "/dev/mapper/cryptroot")
             (type "ext4")
             (dependencies mapped-devices))
  (host-name "xiu")
  (users (cons* (user-account
                  (name "reg")
                  (comment "Reg")
                  (group "users")
                  (home-directory "/home/reg")
                    '("wheel" "netdev" "audio" "video")))
      (list (specification->package "i3-wm")
            (specification->package "nss-certs"))
      (list (service gnome-desktop-service-type)
            (service openssh-service-type)
