Draft [2016-02-01]

The purpose of this draft is to provide the minimum necessary information to get arch up. Later it will be updated for user friendliness and formatting.

For starters, use the guide to load the rescue image:

http://wiki.prgmr.com/mediawiki/index.php/Accessing_your_guest_from_the_rescue_image


Next, clone this repo in the rescue image instance:

https://github.com/prgmrcom/archinstall-scripts For example:

┌──ben [~]
└╼ git clone https://github.com/prgmrcom/archinstall-scripts
Cloning into 'archinstall-scripts'...
remote: Counting objects: 20, done.
remote: Total 20 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0), pack-reused 20
Unpacking objects: 100% (20/20), done.
Checking connectivity... done.
┌──ben [~]
└╼ 


Finally, run the `archinstall.sh` script. When the script ends, there will be the word "finished" on a new line which will look like this:

[tons of script output]
finished
┌──ben [~]
└╼ 

There is currently a pending pull request to make this message more verbose, like so:

[tons of script output]
~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~
finished
********
┌──ben [~]
└╼ 

This script should take care of the hardware aspects of configuring an arch install, however you will still need to set up timezones, user accounts, passwords and so forth. See the arch beginner's guide for details:
