Install Arch Linux with UEFI and GPT

Hi, I purchased a new laptop and I created a partition with Windows 8 (default OS on laptop) and another partition where I want to install Arch Linux.

When I tried to install Arch Linux not boot from CD. After searching in Google I downloaded the latest Arch Linux ISO (2012-12-01) and tried again.

This time CD started without problems but when I used cfdisk showed an error with GPT partition. I went back to search in Google and I read about gdisk and gfdisk and I try it but when I partitioning to install Arch Linux partition show that may cause damage. I searched and searched without success and I wonder if there is a Arch Linux GPT install guide or if someone knows how to install Arch Linux with GPT and a Windows 8 partition in UEFI.

Thanks and regards.

Re: Install Arch Linux with UEFI and GPT

Hi again, finally I got "install" Arch Linux but when I reboot the follow message appears:

"No Booteable Device, Hit any key."

I don't know if I broke Windows Boot Manager, UEFI or both...

I tried to reinstall GRUB but was unsuccessful.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks and regards.

Re: Install Arch Linux with UEFI and GPT

Did you follow https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners%27_Guide?

How did the re-installation of grub fail? Just knowing it didn't work doesn't tell us much...
