How do I install Blackarch Linux
Linux Arch Linux: Installation for Beginners
Arch Linux is a Linux system for more experienced users and offers a fast, minimalistic base system that can be expanded as required. The problem for many beginners: The installation of Arch Linux does not run graphically and there is initially no included desktop environment. Everything has to be installed by hand and then the system has to be adapted to your own preferences. Below, we'll show you how to replace your PC's current operating system with Arch Linux. These instructions are aimed particularly at beginners. We explain step-by-step what preparations you have to make, how you install the actual Arch and how you integrate a desktop environment.
Preparation: create a backup and a USB stick
First, create a backup of your PC. Here you can read how to create a backup for Windows and how to do a backup in Linux. When you install Arch on your hard drive, the current operating system and all files will be erased. If you just want to try Arch, you can install it via a virtual machine. We already have instructions for using Ubuntu in VirtualBox.
You will also need to install a bootable USB stick. First download the official Arch Linux image from archlinux.de. The current version of our instructions is 2020.01.01. Compare the hash values of the downloaded file using a tool or using Windows PowerShell via Get-FileHash. Find out more at microsoft.com. Then create a Linux boot stick according to our instructions. You can also use alternative software like Rufus or balenaEtcher for this.
Grade: Arch Linux only supports 64-bit (x86_64) computers.
Restart your computer and select the USB stick as the boot device in the BIOS. As soon as your PC starts, you open the BIOS via a specific key. This depends on your manufacturer. Often these are the keys [Esc], [F2], [F8], [F10], [F12] or [Del]. You can find out which key to use to start the BIOS here. In the BIOS, navigate to the boot menu and use the arrow keys to select the USB stick as the boot drive. Save the change and then boot from the USB stick.
Create and mount partitions
You must first properly partition a drive in order to install the Arch Linux base system. In the following we explain step-by-step how to create partitions and then correctly mount them:
Installation of the basic system and further setup
Optional: Install desktop environment and window manager
