I plan to use :
dd if=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1 2>&1 | grep GRUB
dd if=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1 2>&1 | grep LILO
to check the bootloader I have. I am really new to arch linux, but I want to fix that problem. It seems I almost fix the problem, just solve the lilo and grub-common problem. If I reinstall arch linux, that could be more difficult for me, and I am afraid of losing my data in the system.

You are new to Arch Linux, but you have an Arch Linux system that
pre-dates the usr-bin move from over seven months ago? :/
You don't even know what boot loader you're using??
Give up with this installation. Reinstall Arch from an up-to-date
installation media, and follow the beginner's guide. I think you will
learn more by doing this than trying to fix your current installation.
