Installing Arch Linux – The Base

So you have installed VirtualBox, you have the Arch ISO image, and you’ve blocked off a section of time for this learning expedition. Let’s get started!

The first step is to start up VirtualBox. Once the program has started you want to click on New to create a new virtual machine. After this, follow through the wizard; just accepting the default values is fine. However, make sure that you tell VirtualBox that it is an Arch install by selecting Linux as your operating system and Arch as your version. When you have finished the wizard, you should see your Arch Virtual Machine in the VirtualBox interface. You can double click on it to start it.
