Ohhh, you wanted me to show you how to install arch? Riiiight...

Basic steps:

  1. Very important first step: Set keyboard layout to colemak 😉
  2. Establish an internet connection and set hardware clock
  3. Partition your disk and format the bootloader and root partitions -> Mount them
  4. Install essential software (vim, tmux, cmatrix and maybe even a kernel if we feel like it) onto your disk using pacstrap
  5. Generate /etc/fstab
  6. Chroot into the system
  7. Set up stuff like timezones, locales, keyboard layout and hostname
  8. Create the initramfs (not always needed, but doesn’t hurt to do it again)
  9. Set your systems password
  10. Install bootloader
  11. Enable sshd and NetworkManager services
  12. Reboot
  13. Install all kinds of software which you might need, like window manager, etc…
