Trying archinstall for the first time, which is a installer for Arch (which traditionally needed to be installed manually). I still had to set up wifi manually because I didn't have a ethernet port on that laptop. But after that it was fairly straight forward. Still nothing for a newbie but that's ok.

It is a bit weird to switch the choice between a list with numbers which you choose and this fake checkbox, so that took me some time to understand how to use it.

But now it is installing the system after it partitioned it and set up the encryption for the hard drive. I have to say that I probably left 90% on the defaults, which was surprising to me.

Amazing, the installation was extremely fast, I barely had time to write the previous post and was already ready to boot into GNOME!
