Hello! Script arch-install bootstraps an Arch Linux environment with encryption (UEFI only).

A choice of either a server or desktop configuration is available. Server installs packages for a basic console setup, whereas desktop installs a choice of either the Openbox window manager or Xorg server (with no desktop).

See Getting started with Arch Linux for details.

How does it work?

  1. Download and verify an Arch Linux ISO from here.
  2. Flash the ISO onto a USB flash drive (or use Ventoy).
  3. Boot the live environment.
  4. Connect to the internet.
  5. pacman -S curl git --needed
  6. git clone
  7. cd arch-install
  8. chmod u+x arch-install && ./arch-install
