Truly save yourself the trouble and get Ubuntu or some other beginner operating system. No offence meant, but Arch seems a little advanced for you.

If you are unable to use google to find the information needed to boot Arch correctly, and fix this error,.. then I suggest you follow this advice.

You're not in the setup and /arch/setup is not any command

Saying "does not work", tells us nothing. The screen shots you showed above are NOT MENTIONED anywhere on the Arch documentation. If you want things to work, you will have to FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Germany_chris pointed that out too.

Again, read and follow the instructions...or load a different distro.

Let me go further..

once you get to the set up you're going to need to partition the disk. then you're going to need to mount it then add the file system mkfs.filesystem /dev/whatever disk, then mount disks mount disk /mnt then pacstrap -i /mnt then genfstab then go through the usual setup.

Arch does it this way to keep people out. The community is not very inviting and if you were to ask this question in the actual Arch forums the post would likely have been deleted and a warning sent your way.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Forum_etiquette

While Arch is the easiest of the "hard" distro's they do not have the welcoming vibe of say Slackware. Your are expected to have some knowledge walking in and are expected to google and read the wiki prior to asking any questions. If you go to the user facebook page it's even worse 2. THIS IS NOT LINUX TECH SUPPORT! If you need some, 1) use google. You'll be probably directed to https://wiki.archlinux.org/ or https://bbs.archlinux.org/. If you don't find an answer there, you can ask on the bbs or IRC ( http://goo.gl/XHtx6T ).

Questions should be phrased as follows

here is my problem

here is what I've read

here is what I tried

here is what's not working (followed by a paste of relevent output from terminal)

The only folks that are harder are free BSD types and they are more welcoming to newbs in many ways.

Re-burn you disk, actually READ the beginners guide then come back and ask questions. I'm not a nice person by nature but I will answer your questions as best as I can from a few timezones and many Km's away. Please remember though that Arch is all about self sufficiency.

Tb0ne has this link to 'how to ask questions' in his signature: https://www.linuxquestions.org/linux...Ask_a_Question

I also refer to this occasionally: http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
