A few useful links for installing Arch Linux

If you would like to install arch, here are a few useful links to help you do so, they have all been pulled from the arch homepage/wiki/forum :

Arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/

The Arch wiki is an amazing site with full guides for installation as well as configuration of any part of your install.

Arch downloads page: https://www.archlinux.org/download/

The place to get your Arch install ISO.

Beginners install guide: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners%27_Guide

One of the best written guides i have seen, covering most aspects of an install. I recommend using this if installing Arch for the first time.

A shorter guide with links to other pages in the wiki for installation/configuration of your Arch install.

An amazing resource, be it for advice, guides or ideas on what to install on your Arch system (trust me you don’t get much when the “install process” is finished).

I’d follow the advice given on this page after an install using either of the guides above.
