I'd like to add an install guide for installation to USB key /boot and RAID5 /root. How can I go about doing that?

I'd be happy to create a page and send the link to someone for linking into the general "How To" area.

We removed checksums with [1]; concerning the last argument, it seems you can use powershell for checksums on Windows, see Fedora Installation. A possible candidate for the See also section, then again Fedora uses a different signing mechanism (the CHECKSUM file is signed, instead of the ISO). -- Alad (talk) 08:31, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Um yeah, at Fedora they sign the checksums, so that powershell "script" isn't gonna work for us, hence linking to it from See also wouldn't be very helpful for a Windows user. The script shouldn't be hard to adapt though, it should be enough to tell to replace "$expected_checksum" with a paste of the checksum from our download page, also changing the function to either MD5 or SHA1 because we don't provide the SHA256 currently. I don't know if it's worth to expand Category:Getting and installing Arch#Verify signature in this direction. — Kynikos (talk) 08:36, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Alternatively, we could link to gpg4win and (for OSX) gpgtools -- Alad (talk) 21:35, 1 August 2016 (UTC)
