What do you mean? You have the installation guide in the bootable
image. If you don't know/remember how to use a specific tool, eg.
parted, you can just man it. You don't actually need the archwiki, and
I would consider man superfluous.

You might now even need an internet connection, I run a local mirror at
home. I am not saying this is common, just that it is possible and
maybe some people might want to do it.
