Todo: add directions for dual booting when Arch is already installed. +2

 With efi instead of bios (and gpt partitioning?), this can be as simple as just installing
 Windows to a second partition, and using efi to choose bootloader. This was done on a
 Dell Latitude E6520.

The first partion scheme is impossible. If you have five partitions, one of them must be logical.

fs-driver only works with inode size 128

If you want to use fs-driver(Ext2 IFS) in windows to access ext2/3 filesystems, the inode size must be 128. this should probably be mentioned in article... ran into this problem myself. fs-driver will not mount my ext3 filesystem because it has inode size 256.
