Arch Linux Downloads
The image can be burned to a DVD, mounted as an ISO file,
or be directly written to a USB flash drive.
It is intended for new installations only; an existing Arch Linux system
can always be updated with
Existing Arch Users
If you are an existing Arch user, there is no need to download a new ISO to update your existing system. You may be looking for an updated mirrorlist instead.
BitTorrent Download (recommended)
If you can spare the bytes, please leave the client open after your
download is finished, so you can seed it back to others.
A DHT capable client is required. A WebSeed capable client is recommended for fastest download speeds.
If you have a wired connection, you can boot the latest release directly over the network.
Vagrant images for libvirt and virtualbox are available on the Vagrant Cloud. You can bootstrap the image with the following commands:
vagrant init archlinux/archlinux
The official Docker image is available on Docker Hub. You can run the image with the following command:
docker run -it archlinux
HTTP Direct Downloads
In addition to the BitTorrent links above, install images can also be downloaded via HTTP from the mirror sites listed below. Please ensure the download image matches the checksum from the sha256sums.txt or b2sums.txt file in the same directory as the image.
b2sum -c b2sums.txt
The release signing key can be downloaded with WKD:
sq wkd get -o release-key.pgp
With this key the signature can be verified like this:
sq verify --signer-file release-key.pgp --detached archlinux--x86_64.iso.sig archlinux--x86_64.iso
