I would suggest to follow official guide for installing arch written by Arch developers here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/installation_guide
But that could be complicated for beginner, bellow is simple set by step guide on how to install Arch linux
Download latest iso image from https://www.archlinux.org/.Pref use torrent from nearest mirror to you.
Make bootable usb. By typing this command into terminal
#dd bs=4M if=/path/to/archlinux.iso of=/dev/sdb status=progress && sync
You will be prompted with screen like this
Check if you pc is connected to internet
ping -c 3 google.com
Partition the hard drive
HDD size80G and ram 4gb should look like this
/dev/sda size mount point
sda1 30G /
sda2 8G swap //used for swap,twice the size of ram
sda3 46G /home
From free space of whole HDD,make those 3 partitions
1.New,Size 30G,primary,enter make it bootable(*)
3.New,size 46G,primary,write to disk yes
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/home
Preparing for install

grub-install –target=i386-pc –recheck /dev/sda
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Unmount partiontions and reboot
umount -R /mnt
DONE YOU HAVE INSTALLED BASE ARCH LINUX
For this example GNOME3
Log in as user
By default internet wont work,so we need to configure it
sudo cp /etc/netctl/examples/ethernet-dhcp /etc/netctl/
ip a //find name of your ethernet card
sudo nano /etc/netctl/ethernet-dhcp //change name of your ethernet card and save changes
sudo netctl start ethernet-dhcp
sudo netctl enable ethernet-dhcp
ping -c 3 google.com
sudo pacman -Syu
lspci -k | grep -A 2 -i “VGA”
pacman -S xorg xorg-xinit xorg-server-utils xterm xorg-xclock xorg-twm
pacman -Syy gnome gnome-extra gnome-tweak-tool

Further customazition and recommendations
1) Create a new folder on your desktop.
2) Right click the file, and select “Open with Other Application…”.
3) Ensure that the “Remember this application for “Folder” files” checkbox
at the bottom of the window is checked.
4) From the main pane, select either “Open Folder” or “File Browser”
5) Click “Open”.
6) There is NO step 6.
7) Test to make sure folders and the places menu now open with nautilus
(the gnome file manager) correctly.
8) Delete the new folder on your deskop
If that does not work for you, then you will have to manually remove the
association from your user profile. when this thread started, there was
a bug with the Open With… applet, which prevented us from using the
process above. that issue appears to be fixed in modern versions of
ubuntu, but every once in a while, it’s still required.
1) Navigate to and open ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list with
the text editor of your choice. if this file does not exist, see below.
2) locate the line that starts with “inode/directory=”
3) Delete the rest of the line, and add “nautilus-folder-handler.desktop;”
4) Save and close the file.
5) Test to make sure everything works as expected.
Since this thread started, some users have reported that the mimeapps.lst file is not where they expect it.
To find the cuplrit initially, gasco uninstalled the app that was giving him problems, and then scanned his home directory to find any references to the application.
here is he command he used:
find . -name ‘*’ -print0 | xargs -t -0 grep -l
this approach should allow you to find the problem even if ubuntu changes the way it stores file-> app associations.
Hope that Helps
