Well depending how customized your machine is it probably wouldn’t matter using the new iso. Just a pacman -Syu and your caught up with everyone. If you wanted the new defaults you could get them out of /etc/skel if need be.


Thanks to everyone on the team. Another step forward. :+1:

@cog I had a bunch skel update the other day. nice


Thanks :+1: :smiley:
Perfect timing, my Bro-In-Law is coming over for lunch tomorrow and is going to donate me his old Thinkpad (no idea which it is, but I always wanted one)
Guess what’s going on that :smile:

Congrats on the new release!


thanks for your work, why not offering p2p downloads btw?

Hey. So yesterday I got a brand new PC that already has Windows 11 on it. I wanted to do a dual boot so I started the typical process.
I was having so much problems especially. It kept stating the /boot is full and basically the command

arch-chroot /mnt bash -c 'mkinitpcio -p linux'

was not working.

I never had this problem with other install especially on a brand new PC (literally unboxed it, load up Windows to shrink volume, reboot and started up the AL installer).

I just created an additional partition with 2GB for the VFAT for /boot

It works not but I doubt what I did was actually the proper way to make it work.

any thoughts why this might be the case?

Were you originally trying to share the Windows 11 efi partition? I’ve seen on other forums where that has caused issues.

yup I was.

Pretty sure what you did was the proper method - path of least resistance anyway. The other issue is Windows 11 reformatting the efi partition during certain upgrades. So I think your safe.

Can you boot either OS now?


Good review indeed! Thanks for sharing
