Installing arch linux on my new desktop machine

After using arch linux for quite a time on my laptop it’s time to move on a new machine. So I’ll install arch again this time taking I slightly different approach than on the laptop.

Installing arch linux on my ThinkPad

After having worked almost 2 years with fedora, I decided to switch to arch linux. In this post I’ve written down the steps I took to install arch linux on my ThinkPad W510. I’ve just been too annoyed by almost reinstalling the system at least once a year with every release. And there have been kernel panics and gnome shell hangs coming and going and I couldn’t really find out why. I didn’t want to spend much time on that either. I don’t want to say fedora is bad, I just have the feeling that archlinux is better for me. So after trying it in a virtual box I’m going to give it a try on my laptop. This writeup is not intented to be a arch linux install tutorial (there are many) or replace the wonderful arch linux wiki. It’s just a note for me what I did but I hope it might me helpful for somebody else as well.
