The ultimate Arch Linux installation guide

First of all if you are reading this, it means you are one of the curious few who wanted to try Arch Linux. Kudos for that. I am assuming you already know about Arch Linux so I am not going into the nittie-gritties of it.

I am here to make sure that you do not face any glitches in your Arch Linux installation process. In case you face any issues, I’ll let you know the smoothest way to resolve them.

It is very important that you follow the below steps strictly.

  1. Stop googling for other articles on how to install Arch Linux.
  2. Go to the Arch Installation Wiki and read/follow it from start to finish without skipping any steps.
  3. You are done.

That is it — don’t watch any how-to videos on YouTube and don’t read any other how-to articles. The correct way to install Arch Linux is only following the installation guide. The ideology of Arch Wiki is that it should be the go-to place for Arch users.

The wiki has been contributed by thousands of people who made sure to cover almost all the edge cases. If you still face any problems in the installation, you can ask questions at the Arch Newbie Corner and Arch Linux Sub-Reddit.

Peace ❤
