Hey all,Hope this is the right area to be posting -- my apologizes if its not. Was just wondering if any of you had any experience installing Arch Linux on a tablet? Right now I have Arch running on my Lenovo s400 touch laptop and was very impressed with how nicely Arch interacts with the touch screen.
Okay so after a painful 3 days of fixing / changing / reformatting I have finally got Arch Linux install. Now comes the problem. I had to remove Windows when installing Arch but I still need Windows. How would one go about installing Windows after Arch? I am using refined and (what I think is) grub as my bootloaders. Grub coming in before refined.
Has anyone come across a good, easy to follow manual for how to install Arch Linux?
Ubuntu is my favorite distro and I'm currently using Ubuntu 12.04.1LTS, however I also like to try other systems as well.

Hi guys,I'm new to Arch Linux. Okay I'll be straightforward and tell you I'm using ArchBang. I honestly thought it was just Arch with an easier install and OpenBox but Arch users have said otherwise. I've been loving using ArchBang. I love Pacman and the AUR and all the other things that go with Arch but I want to use pure Arch.
When people want to try Linux, it is very likely that their first distro is either Ubuntu, Mint or Zorin. But after using Linux for a while, most users will know about and want to try Arch Linux, a lightweight, flexible and highly customizable distro. You will gain a lot of benefits from trying and using Arch Linux.
