I own a 13 inch Mid 2010 Macbook Pro with the base configuration. When partitioning my hard drive what hexadecimal flag should the 100 MiB boot partition be given and what format should it be formatted to? Also upon running iwconfig wlan0 does not appear how can I get wifi to work? Thanks in advance.
I can solve your wireless problem. Read this thread:
wlan0 is no longer your wireless interface. Try
to find out what the name is now.

I laugh, yet the joke is on me
Which boot partition? If this is for EFI, that doesn't seem enough. (Should be at least 512 for fat 32.)
Have you read https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners%27_Guide?
Unless you're installing a new hard drive, I would recommend reusing the factory formatted ESP. (You'll definitely want to do this if you're dual booting with OS X.)
In regards to wifi (and other installation and configuration issues), I would recommend (re)reading the MacBook Wiki. Most of the MacBook specific installation issues have been worked out and documented there.
