    Trophy Points:
    asking for help on the arch forums/wiki demands you only follow their guide EXACTLY.
    the down-side to this is that you cannot install 64-bit arch with uefi following their guide.

    [bootctl-install is far too polite and refuses to execute, insisting that there MUST already be an
    existing m$ install on your /boot partition because the partition type says so, because it's 0700]

    fdisk/gdisk/gparted all claim to generate /boot with type ef00 but checking right away
    shows that they created /boot with type 0700, and do the same if you change 0700 to ef00.

    so far cgdisk is the only way that i know of that will result in type ef00 by specifying ef00.
    if you do this and it works, you should really pretend you read it on the forums/wiki. OTL
