Re: help with pacman

Did you mount your partitions? What is your partition scheme?

Re: help with pacman

Please don't do this. Recommending instructions like this is a bad idea for several reasons. First, they go out of date very quickly. Second, instructions like this only work for certain configurations (e.g. bios rather than efi),. Third, they encourage blind copy-pasting which prevents new users learning why they are doing things and increases the chances that they will both break things and have no idea how to fix them.
