Thanks! This looks awesome! But I don't know if I am going to learn Haskell just for that, but that input is useful! It would be nice if there is a solution where I am not going to spend hours to get used to it. ;-)
When your setting up Arch with a UEFI BIos motherboard its easier if you boot through the UEFI shell on a usb disk then through the install cd. It cleans up a lot of headaches. Read the post below to find out how.https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=148155
It varies on different manufacturer motherboards. I've got two recent ASRock mobos (different form factors) and the UEFI implementations on them are a bit different. The better one, recognizes UEFI on a USB stick and gives the option to boot it as BIOS or UEFI.
My motherboards firmware must be out of date, because I couldn't get UEFI Shell v2 to work, and that's the one that includes bcfg command. Also, I couldn't boot anything other than my pendrive in UEFI mode.

There is a wee bit of information here:https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/UE … leshootingSetting up UEFI support certainly looks fiddly. I have an ultrabook with "secure boot" enabled, which I want to get to boot from a USB stick without having to turn on legacy (BIOS) boot mode (Windows 8.1 complains about it).
