A quick suggestion : Why not try systemd-boot instead of grub? (Since now arch is installed in UEFI) No harm trying ;)
Nothing ventured, nothing gained...
Well, it is now apparent why UEFI is disabled, when enabling it in the bios, you get a large warning that:
UEFI implementation in this bios is experimental and it is recommended that you disable 'Disk Lock' (HP drive encryption) and Pre-Boot Authentication before enabling UEFI.
So, I did. Then tried to boot, and it paused for a minute, moved the cursor to about mid-screen, and then went though the Legacy boot order and failed again with Disk Error '0F3' (no operating system found).
So, I stuck the USB back in, booted, chose existing, and I'm up and running again -- and back to square-one on "Why does this box boot fine from the .iso, but will not boot from the hard drive?"
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll keep picking away, but if anybody has any other thoughts or diagnostics to run to help explain this, I would appreciate it.
