I want to install Arch Linux on PCs but don't want to go through all of the steps manually. Are there any scripts i could use that would automate the process?

 

Also, the systems will mostly be dual booted so is there any way i manually partition then run the automated process?

 

If there is a version with a graphical installer, that would be equally nice.

This is the easiest way watch the video and download the revenge installer and follow the prompts.

 

One thing I'm certain about is that if you are a novice then Arch ain't for you as it ain't new user friendly.

Well there is always manjaro

https://manjaro.org

And for something a little bit closer to Arch there is antergos:

Keep in mind that Arch Linux is really for hardcore users who dig deep into user manuals and the wiki it's not meant for those who like automated installers and or ease-of-use operating systems. Me personally I like manjaro, it's been my distribution for a little while now as it is sort of in between a stable release and a rolling release.

You know you want me baby!

Manjaro is Arch Linux the friendly way once a few pacman commands are learned.

 

I've never had any problems with Manjaro and comes with lots of software from it's own repository.

 

Pretty much installs and updates and runs out of the box or has for me.

  You could try Antergos

I agree.
