Building - Arch Linux "Issue"


Hello world,
I am looking to learn some Arch Linux.
I know i am green but if i may get some help please.
Below is my info and my issue.

Dell Latitude 5517 with hdd 325gb and 4gb of ram.
sda1 is my swap
sda2 is marked as boot
I had written both and proceeded and currently building Arch linux. My issue is i have all my packages, extras and core installed and updated. When moving on to the next step of arch-chroot, the system indicates that there is no mount point and therefore i can't proceed to arch-chroot. How, what and where do i go from here?

Please, explain in simple form so that i may understand at my best. Thanks in advance!

So assuming you are following the Beginner's Guide from the home page (if not please let us know what instructions you are following), I would presume you are up to the following line:
Code:
Change root
Copy any other configuration files to the new system in /mnt (such as netctl profiles in /etc/netctl), then chroot to it:
# arch-chroot /mnt /bin/bash
Assuming this is correct, please provide the exact error message and confirm that as per those instructions you have mounted everything under /mnt?

So others may learn from your attempt, please explain what was incorrect and what you did to fix it?

please give "ls /mnt"

so we can see what became solved

what is in this arch chroot that (apparently) was created ? what flavor is it ?

i see your installing arch-linux it so far doesn't appear your building it from scratch (probably best you dont?). when we say "building" we mean compiling C software, usually, as opposed to use of pre-compiled installed software
