The only real hurdle with getting Arch Linux installed is the RAID configuration. There are several alternatives with various advantages and disadvantages. The easiest is to just leave the raid enabled as per factory settings and treat the resulting partition as a single drive.
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 119.2G 0 disk └─md126 9:126 0 238.5G 0 raid0 ├─md126p1 259:0 0 15.6G 0 md / └─md126p2 259:1 0 221.9G 0 md /home sdb 8:16 0 119.2G 0 disk └─md126 9:126 0 238.5G 0 raid0 ├─md126p1 259:0 0 15.6G 0 md / └─md126p2 259:1 0 221.9G 0 md /home
As you can see the system contains two separate drives which have been used to create a single RAID partition, raid0. When preparing your storage drive during installation, you would then treat that raid0 partition as the drive to install on.
# cfdisk /dev/md126

Alternatively, just disable the IRST and treat the two SSD drives separately.
