When booting the freshly installed system, I get the syslinux menu, select Archlinux or fallback, things seem to be normal for a few seconds then everything stops. After some time I get a message that /dev/sda3 (which is the / partition) can't be found and I'm dropped into an emergency shell.
Everything in /boot/syslinux looks ok.
Any hints ??
Had a very similar issue to that with my rig. Fairly vanilaa x2 Athlon system with 500 gig sata drive. A power cycle resolved it. A subsequent change...adding a new sata drive...on first post install boot caused this to happen again. Power cycling the rig fixed the problem again. C
