[RESOLVED] grub-mkconfig not found

I'm installing my first version of Arch Linux.

I have entered:

arch_chroot /mnt

and I have reach the 'Boot loader' section of the instruction guide  where I clicked on the 'microcode' link.

I have entered:

pacman -S intel-ucode

to install the microcode successfully.

If I read the installation guide properly, my next step is to run:

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

When I run this command, I get an error message:

bash: grub-mkconfig: command not found

I have done a search in the arch root and grub-mkconfig is not found. I exited out of arch root and searched the iso DVD and found that grub-mkconfig is in /usr/bin.

Can someone explain how to run grub-mkconfig?

You have not yet made your boot loader choice, you should go back and click the boot loaders section and then decide for a boot loader. grub-mkconfig would be needed if you were to opt for GRUB as your bootloader, which you'd have to properly install first.

Thank you. I will go back and re-read and try to figure out how I skipped over making the boot loader choice.
