I am not sure which one is used as my boot loader, could you please tell me how to check that? I am thinking using this following command:
#pacman -Rs lilo
#pacman -Rs grub-common
#pacman -S grub
Is that correct?
Thank you so much!

To clarify -- grub-comon is now simply grub (grub itself was dropped
to the AUR some time ago, and grub2 was renamed 'grub' in it's place).
If you are using grub2 as your boot loader, install the "grub" package
from your chroot, and remove the lilo and grub-common packages.
If you are booting with lilo, remove grub-common and update lilo.(now
at 24.0-3 in the AUR).
