In this Scenario, I am starting with a standard Install of Windows 10 on an entire disk.  The main partition is shrunk with the Disk Management tool.  A new partition is created from the free space.  LVM is used to create logical volumes for root and swap.  LUKS is used to encrypt the root partition.  Grub is used to create a boot menu at startup with both partitions using UEFI.

Disk Manager

A screen-shot of Disk Manger shows the default 499 MB and 100 MB  partitions Windows 10 created from a basic install.  The (C:) 195.2 GB NTFS partition was shrunk to make room for (F:) 60.55 GB RAW by right-clicking on it and clicking on shrink.  I Entered a value of 62000 MB.

Rufus

Download the latest arch.iso from https://www.archlinux.org/download/

Use https://rufus.ie/ to burn the iso to a USB drive with GPT Partition Scheme for UEFI (non CSM) selected.

Arch Install

Insert the install media and reboot the system.  On mine, I click F11 to bring up the boot menu and boot in to Arch UEFI blah.
