Arch Linux Installation Guide

Cosa ti serve

    • Download the official Installation Image from the Arch Linux Download page.

    • The file you download may vary depending on how you want to boot into Arch. For this tutorial, we are going to want the ISO file.

    • While it isn't a required step, it is recommended to verify the image before trying to use the ISO file.

    • Use GnuPG and import the Arch Linux Developer Key with the following command.

    • gpg --keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve --verify archlinux-version-x86_64.iso.sig

    • Once completed, navigate to the directory where your ISO file and the signature file are located. You can then verify the signature with the following command.

    • gpg --keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve --verify archlinux-version-x86_64.iso.sig

    • Navigate to the BalenaEtcher website and download the appropriate version of BalenaEtcher for your operating system.

    • Insert your USB drive into your computer and launch BalenaEtcher. Select the Arch Linux ISO file you downloaded, then choose the USB drive as the target. Click 'Flash' to start the flashing process.

    • Ensure that you have selected the correct drive, as the process will erase all data on the drive.

    • Once the flashing process is complete, you can remove the USB drive.

    • Power off the computer you want to install Arch Linux onto, and insert the USB drive.

    • Power on your machine and boot your machine into your BIOS or UEFI settings and choose the USB drive as your boot option.

    • Once the live system has loaded, you will be booted into Arch's terminal.

    • Arch Linux does not include a pre-installed graphical user interface (GUI) by default. Therefore, users are required to install and configure their preferred desktop environment or window manager manually after the base system is installed.

    • From the Terminal you can partition your disk, format the partitions, and mount the partitions according to your system's requirements.

    • Use the Pacman package manager to install the base system and essential packages according to your preferences and needs.

    • Configure the system by setting the hostname, configuring the network, and creating a user account with appropriate privileges. Set up the bootloader and other necessary configurations.

    • After completing the installation and configuration process, type 'exit' to leave the chroot environment, unmount all the partitions and reboot the system.

    • Remove the USB drive when prompted and allow the system to boot into the newly installed Arch Linux environment.


Congratulations! You have successfully installed Arch Linux using a live system and a USB drive as the installation medium, with the help of BalenaEtcher.
