No you don't boot into LiveCD like someone said before thingking at all,
this is Arch after all, we all have working text console and are not
dependan't on X to be able to work. Just boot into text mode by adding 3
at the end of the kernel boot line, if you used the inittab method, but
if you have used the DAEMONS=(.... gdm/kdm/xdm/... ....) method you 1st
need to boot into single user mode by adding 's' instead of 3. Then in
the single user mode remount the / filesystem rw and edit rc.conf to not
start the loginmanager. Then you change into init mode 3 and there just
login like regularry and install xorg-server package 'pacman -S
