      I dunno how to do that.

      Connect to wifi or plug in an ethernet cable

      Okay thanks but I just went into installation again to do so and now I have pic rel. And it is just stuck there. So no wifi fixing now. Every time I have tried arch is has been cursed Holy fuck.

          Arch had a perfectly good beginner tutorial but they took it down due to this kind of autism.

        You need an internet connection to install Arch, I believe. Connect your PC to the internet and reboot.

        breh follow the installation guide on the wiki, if you can’t follow it you either have unsupported hardware or you’re just not skilled enough to use Arch, googling the errors that pop up usually tells you what’s wrong

      I rebooted and it actually gave me the proper arch install screen now whereas before it was black with white text now it had the icon logo and the blue and grey layout. Now it is going more smoothly. Dunno why that reboot helped. Thanks anon.

      Yeah I did it ironically it was a hurr durr inb4 you have to do bad grammar.

      Arch had a perfectly good beginner tutorial but they took it down due to this kind of autism.

      This shit annoys me. You reach out for help and they tell you to do your own research. Like bro, this is my research. To reach out and ask for help with an issue.

    also it's not recognizing your ethernet card, you need to include drivers in ISO or reboot to see if it just skipped over it
    happens with onboard cards that have weird reset functions

      are you on a surface?

      if so download the linux-surface kernel when you get in, it'll enable power management and usually helps with touchpad stuff

        Yep and xorg and it's server failed to launch too. It's okay. I reinstalled using archinstall and selected desktop version with xfce. Xfce is shit but it's up and running I suppose. Thanks anon.

      Why'd you use a non noob distribution when you're a noob yourself? If you had the skill / interest in what you're doing you'd actually do it instead of coming here to be spoon fed and learn nothing in the process?

      I learned more from the actual helpful anons here than I from googling each error.

        If you don't have the installation guide in front of you, you're doing it wrong. It is step by step and exhaustive.

        Good you got it working, but if you keep asking for help every step of the way, people are going to see you as a timesink who won't seek knowledge for themself.

    It literally tells you what is wrong, that's what error messages are for. Read them, put the information in your brain, and go from there.
