When to remove installation medium?

I don’t know when to remove the bootable USB I made. I’m planning to install Arch Linux, but this one thing is holding me from doing so. Can you all please tell me when I’m supposed to remove the install medium?

They’ll know better than us.


I think, best time is after first reboot into the fresh installed Arch Linux.
If you choose “remove” in for example Nautilus and the System does not complain,
everything should be fine!?

I’ve never installed Arch, but I think the name kind of gives it away. I’m guessing the install medium can be removed wheen the system’s finished installing?

After the installation is complete, shut down the PC with systemctl poweroff and remove the installation medium after it powers off.
