  1. I made this guide for installing archlinux as VM.
  2. Hello. Here is my commands which i've now used 2 times to install archlinux as VM inside Unraid with EFI. I'm using latest unraid version: 6.7.2 and it's intel system. Tell me if there is any problems with it. I've used archlinux-2019.04.01-x86_64.iso Add VM --> Select Arch Machine: i440fx-3.1 BIOS: OVMF Primary vDisk Size: 20G CREATE Connect to VM ls /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/**/*.map.gz #lists all keymaps loadkeys fi #your keymap fi/en/swe etc whatever you want ls /sys/firmware/efi/efivars #checks if efi is enabled ping google.com #check that you have connection timedatectl set-ntp true #sets ntp fdisk -l #lists disks fdisk /dev/vda #open fdisk on your virtual drive ------------- fdisk /dev/vda ------------------ n >> enter >> enter >> enter >> +550M #efi partition n >> enter >> enter >> enter >> +18G #linux partition 18G for 20GB vDisk 28G for 30GB vDisk etc n >> enter >> enter >> enter >> enter #swap partition, rest of disk as swap w #writes changes --------------------------------------------------------- mkfs.fat -F32 /dev/vda1 #formats efi partition mkfs.ext4 /dev/vda2 #formats linux parition mkswap /dev/vda3 #formats swap partition swapon /dev/vda3 #sets swap partiton mount /dev/vda2 /mnt #mounts linux partition to /mnt mkdir /mnt/boot #makes boot folder inside /mnt mount /dev/vda1 /mnt/boot #mounts efi partition to /mnt/boot pacstrap /mnt base #installs arch to /mnt genfstab -U /mnt >> /mnt/etc/fstab #generated fstab arch-chroot /mnt #changes root location to /mnt aka where just installed arch timedatectl list-timezones #list available timezones ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Helsinki /etc/localtime #set your zone as default hwclock --systohc #sets hardware clock locale-gen #generates locales nano /etc/locale.conf #open/create file --------- /etc/locale.conf -------------- LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 #set your preferred language and press CTRL+X >> y >> enter ---------------------------------------------------- nano /etc/vconsole.conf #open/create file ------- /etc/vconsole.conf ---------- KEYMAP=fi #sets keyboard layout, CTRL+X >> y >> enter --------------------------------------------------- nano /etc/hostname #open/create file -------- /etc/hostname --------------- archlinux #sets hostname for your machine, CTRL+X >> y >> enter -------------------------------------------------- nano /etc/hosts #open/create file ------ /etc/hosts ----------------------- 127.0.0.1 localhost ::1 localhost 127.0.1.1 archlinux.workgroup archlinux #CTRL+X >> y >> enter ------------------------------------------------- mkinitcpio -p linux #makes initframs passwd #sets password for root exit #exits /mnt root back to live grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/mnt/boot --boot-directory=/mnt/boot --bootloader-id=grub #installs grub arch-chroot /mnt #back to /mnt root pacman -S grub #installs grub package to installation grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg #same as update-grub on ubuntu exit #exits /mnt back to live reboot -f #reboots system dhcpcd #if you dont have network this gives it ping google.com #test connection -------------- GUI installation start --------------------- pacman -S lxde #installs lxde (you can install whatever GUI you want) #optional apps pacman -S firefox #installs firefox pacman -S transmission-gtk #installs transmission GUI systemctl enable lxdm #makes service to enable lxdm nano /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf #opens lxdm config session=/usr/bin/startlxde #edit session to match as following (uncomment it) reboot -f setxkbmap fi #inside gui enviroment sets your keymapping -------------- GUI installation end --------------------- dhcpcd #if you dont have network ip link #look for your network device name eth0 or ens3 in my case systemctl enable dhcpcd@ens3 #creates startup service for ens3 ip link set ens3 up #sets ens3 up pacman -Syy #update package list pacman -Su #install updates #optional: user creation for sudoing useradd -m -s /bin/bash arch #creater new user, arch is username passwd arch #sets password for arch pacman -S sudo #installs sudo package EDITOR=nano visudo #edit sudo config arch ALL=(ALL) ALL #add this line with your username under root ALL=(ALL) ALL and CTRL+X >> y >> enter reboot -f #reboot DONE twiikker
