Dualboot setup with Windows (New Installer)

Okay, so I want to dualboot Arch with Windows. Windows is already installed.
I have used archinstall script before, but I went with 'default partition layout' option which wipes all partitions and creates necessary partitions for me.
I can't do that here since I have to keep my Windows related partitions intact.
I really don't have time to read the arch wiki and do this manually right now., so please bear with me.

I have 7 partitions. I created 2 empty partitions for linux from windows,
EFI partition
3 recovery partitions (Windows & OEM)
1 Raw empty partition (This is where I want to install arch)
1 Raw empty partition (for linux swap)
Windows partition

I want to install arch to my raw partition and set the other raw parition as my swap.

So how should I configure the disk layout inside archinstall script to get this done?

I don't get notifications for posts that are moved between threads.
And for some reason I didn't get one for this one.

For dualboot setup, you can follow these instructions: https://youtu.be/RoTe4uAqIHA

Be aware of this issue tho: https://github.com/archlinux/archinstall/issues/998
*(It's been fixed, and I'm trying to push a release today)*

Please do not advice tutorials other than links to the Arch Wiki. The mods don´t like that, and for good reason.
Arch wiki -> dual boot windows

And if one want to install Arch:

I really don't have time to read the arch wiki

-> that's really a nogo around here.

I get that and you'd normally be right.
But that is my own "tutorial" under my own channel on how to use `archinstall` for dual-booting, not the individual steps.
As the creator of archinstall I think I'd be allowed an exception to the rule when explaining how to use that tool?
