Hi There,

I have just tested to extract guix.iso.xz using Xarchiver and tried to 
install guix.iso on a vbox, The image wont be readable/identified for 
installation.

Only way to make it work is by using unxz command.

Thanks for the report.

I installed Xarchiver and used it to extract the iso.xz to /tmp.

Then I did this:

------
$ file guix-system-install-1.2.0.x86_64-linux.iso 
guix-system-install-1.2.0.x86_64-linux.iso: DOS/MBR boot sector; GRand Unified Bootloader, stage1 version 0x79, boot drive 0xbb, stage2 address 0x8e70, 1st sector stage2 0xb8db31c3, stage2 segment 0x201
------

So, I think it worked?

I found Xarchiver somewhat complicated...
