Aaa,  Thanks.  I managed to get it installed and configured, but while 
the system booted I had no speech.  I saw another thread on this and 
someone thought it was an orca problem, but not sure as this was a basic 
arch system.  I did havew antergoes installed to another vm and also had 
no speech so could be releated.   Thanks again.  I will mess with this a 
bit more as it seems the efi partition needs to be mount twice onece 
before installing all packages and then mounted to the installed system 
while in arch-chroot.
