Changing layout

If you're e.g. a dvorak user, your first step could be changing the keyboard layout:

loadkeys dvorak

Network connection

After archiso has been booted you may want to make wireless internet connection, wired connection should be done automatically:


To check connection:

ping -c 3

Update the system clock

To ensure that system clock is accurate.

timedatectrl set-ntp true

Check the status:

timedatectrl status


Lets make sure we're using UEFI mode:

ls /sys/firmware/efi/efivars/


efivar -l

Variables in output means everything is fine. If not, the system may be booted in BIOS or CSM mode.
