Hello
 
I recently wanted to try running Guix on WSL2. I followed the path of https://othacehe.org/wsl-images-for-guix-system.html and created a guix image tarball from wsl.scm.
 
Everything went fine while importting the tarball into WSL2 and running it. The problem I have is when I want to update my system by running:
"sudo guix system reconfigure ~/.config/guix/system.scm"
 
I get an exceptions that complaines about the dummy-bootloader package.
 
Here is the backtrace:

                      "emacs"))
                      %base-packages))))
wsl2-os
 
Any ideas of what the issue could be?

Hi Kristofer,

I actually reached the same error. I have absolutely no idea what's going on, but I found a way to move on.

Basically, I defined a `dummy-bootloader`. Because I don't know what I'm doing, I took inspiration of some other well-known blog article talking about running guix on WSL, notably https://wiki.systemcrafters.net/guix/wsl/.

```
(define dummy-bootloader
  (bootloader (name 'dummy-bootloader)
              (package
                dummy-package)
              (configuration-file "/dev/null")
              (configuration-file-generator (lambda* rest
                                              (computed-file
                                               "dummy-bootloader"
                                               #~(mkdir #$output))))
              (installer #~(const #t))))
```

Then it can be used as follows.

```
(define wsl2-os
  (operating-system
    (...)
    (bootloader (bootloader-configuration
                  (bootloader dummy-bootloader)))
```

This seems to work for running `guix system reconfigure wsl2.scm` on my machine. If someone can explain what this new definition changes? And maybe make some hypothesis about why that would work (and the original wouldn't)?

Best regards.
