Arch Linux installation with GPT, LUKS, LVM and i3

This post describes an installation of Arch Linux with GPT (GUID partition table), LUKS (Linux Unified Key Setup) and LVM (Logical Volume Manager) with the basic graphical window manager i3. LVM is set up on top of LUKS. Systemd-boot is used as an EFI compatible boot manager. I wrote this post, so next time I don’t have to search all the information in the Arch Linux Wiki. For more details, consult the links in the reference section.

Important: This is not a beginners guide for an Arch Linux installation, so you should have basic understanding of Arch Linux, LUKS and LVM. You should understand all options so you can adjust them to your needs.
