Just to point out something: when using arch-chroot, the following
command is executed (with $1=/tmp/root.x86_64/):
mountpoint -q "$1" || track_mount "$1" "$1" --bind;
Since /tmp/root.x86_64/ is not a mountpoint, we got /tmp/root.x86_64/
binded on itself, which override any previous mount points under
/tmp/root.x86_64/, especially /tmp/root.x86_64/mnt. So if you install
arch that way, you install it on your /tmp, and not on the mounted
So you need to either mount your partition after entering the chroot or
bind /tmp/root.x86_64/ before mounting it.
