Booting Arch Linux from USB

To disable Secure Boot, set the supervisor password in the BIOS settings. Then you should be able to boot Arch.

If you set up your installation media (USB drive) via Rufus i had the most success by using GPT as partition table (in UEFI mode).


Install the xf86-video-intel package as shown here
