It is recommended to verify the image signature before use, especially when downloading from an HTTP mirror, where downloads are generally prone to be intercepted to serve malicious images.
On a system with GnuPG installed, do this by downloading the PGP signature (under Checksums) to the ISO directory, and verifying it with
gpg --keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve --verify archlinux-<version>-dual.iso.sig.
pacman-key -v archlinux-<version>-dual.iso.sig from an existing Arch Linux installation.
The table below offers an overview of the common ways to boot the installation media.
