Question Editing the Arch iso


I am thinking I might edit the Arch iso as even the minimal install does not include a couple of essentials that I must have in order to bootload Arch okay. There should not be any problems that I can think of doing that but am I wrong? And for quick reference, where and what folder would that long list of software apps you see in the "select packages" section be residing on the Cd and should the applications I add be in a specific format? For example, EFI loader is just one exampe, as is a GRUB 1.99 beta file that I must have and would they them show up in the graphical interface once the new modified iso was booted?

You can tailor your own to your convenience.

You should know where. How can you edit that successfully if in the first place you did not know where to put your insertion?

As almost anytime when it comes to Arch, the ArchWiki knows the answer.
