I successfully dual booted windows 7 and archlinux
However I can't get the x server to start. I followed this guide https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners%27_Guide
and tried using the vesa drivers but it just brought up a black screen with a bunch of random lines and colours. I uninstalled them and installed nvidia drivers via pacman -S nvidia and now when I do startx the nvidia splash screen flashes then goes back to the command line with some errors. here's a link to my Xorg log file. http://pastebin.com/pH5ghuSr
Also I have a 335m nvidia card.
The computer is an Alienware m11x
I also tried installing xfce to see if that would fix the problem.
Will post more details if I need to.
