Installing archlinux with encrypted LVM on LUKS (UEFI), via ssh.

We will install archlinux with LVM on LUKS encryption (UEFI), via ssh. This is for advanced users. If you just want to install archlinux, look elsewhere.

Download the ISO and burn it to your USB key like so:

dd bs=4M if=/path/to/archlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync

Set the keyboard layout. In my case, it’s Belgian AZERTY (/usr/share/kbd/rubfhaps/i386/azerty/be-latin1.map.gz)

loadkeys be-latin1

Verify if you are booted in UEFI mode (is this directory populated?)

ls /sys/firmware/efi/efivars
