Hello I am trying to install arch linux on a virtual machine.

But when I import the iso and go through every step and get into the actual shell everything is ok but when I reboot the installation resets because I get the installation screen everytime and the OS is reset.. What do I have to do to avoid this and just start running the os

enter image description here

When the virtual machine reboots, it boots from the CD again.

You need to remove the installation image (iso) after you install the system.

I have tried this already but when rebooting I get the error no operating system found – Reshad Oct 16 '13 at 11:10
that would likely mean grub/lilo is not installed properly – Journeyman Geek Oct 16 '13 at 11:39
