After reboot I get stuck on a screen with Grub.

I did all of this and once I reboot it will just bring me to a screen that says grub in the top left and I cant type anything. Forgot to mention this install is via usb but I don't know if that will help. Please tell me at witch point I am fucking up and how.

Sorry I don't know much about EFI, so I can't say if you invoked grub-install incorrectly. It looks fine to me.

One thing you will need though is to have /etc/default/grub changed so that it has the following:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd"

Maybe try and see if that's your problem? Regardless, you do need an init program configured somewhere in order to finish the booting process.

Wrong. This kernel parameter is no longer necessary for new installations, as systemd-sysvcompat, which is part of base, creates a symlink from /usr/bin/init to systemd. Ignore the previous post.

The installation procedure looks fine to me, too, except for the part where you install grub. You may have forgotten to mount the efivarfs, but this step may or may not be necessary, because efivarfs should already be mounted at boot.
EDIT: Welcome to the forums. You did a good job at documenting.

Re: After reboot I get stuck on a screen with Grub.

In my first installation, I had to type another variable to grub-install that I found from its main page; you may give it a try while at it:

grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --root-directory=/ --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id=arch_grub --recheck 

Edit: If it succeeds, please inform back so we can edit wiki.
