Hi, I currently have linux mint and windows 7, I wanted to try Arch linux the download went perfectly I checked the md5 sum, and I mounted it, but after that nothing happens, usually in mint a program runs automatically the settings to install, but this didn't happen for me, when I open the mounted iso I see files only, the same problem happened when I tried install backtrack, I am really sorry if this is a noob question but I tried everything to find a way to install it but I ran out of options and this is my last resort.
I am using HP laptop Intel core I7 Radeon graphic card.
Thank you for your help!

Mounting the iso? You won't be able to install it that way. I would guess when you installed Mint you used mint4win and installed it inside windows?? I've never used that program but you will generally need to download the iso file, do the md5check, burn it as an image to a CD/DVD, put it in your CD/DVD drive and reboot the computer with the CD drive set to first boot priority.

Good info from Yancek. I would only like to add that Arch is not a distro that runs "out of the box". You have to download Arch CD and manually set it up by creating partitions, installing bootloader, network connections and then there is still a lot of work to do after that.
