I've changed pacman.conf to Sigcheck=never before but that was for my
own built and signed package anyway so of course that may add risk in
your case. You'd likely need to include more in your chroot or you could
check the sigs manually. They are on the mirrors with .sig
after them. I guess the wiki needs updating?

You could likely just disable X starting and then run pacman once booted
into the console. If the cds not available next time you can add
break=y to the kernel commandline.


 Why not do something good every day and install BOINC.
