You can now `Start` your VM again. You can now use the PXE menu as usual to
boot `Archlinux` image.
You can use the `skip-download` image to avoid downloading the image each time.
Be wary that this image may not be up to date and then have bugs. You should re-download
the VM every once in a while to be sure to have all the latest tools and potential bugs fixes.
