Installing Arch

Pre-Install

Before you install Arch, ensure that the SATA mode is set to "IDE" in the BIOS. This will resolve the hard drive error messages.

Package Installation

Be sure to install "iwlwifi-5000-ucode" and "wireless_tools" (I also installed "netcfg") if you would like wireless to work post-install.
