Great news Aaron, I'm gonna test tonight..
PS: i made a little "roadmap" to know at which point of the
procedure you can verify which item.
* after boot:
FS#13038 - Tiny typo in ISO boot message : Should be "Arch Linux Live
FS#13140 - Official Installation documentation
for 64bit users:FS#13068 - grub-gfx-0.97-7 outdated in x86_64
pacman -Qi grub-gfx. check that it's 0.97-11 or higher
* during installation
FS#12949 - `hdparm -I' fails in VMware : check that the disk capacities
look okay (afaik you can see this best in the autoprepare one).
especially vmware users
* after install / on first boot
FS#12896 - USB install - won't boot into install system : USB users,
check that it works
FS#13102 - fix, need to copy initial /etc/localtime : check that this
file exists on the target system and you don't get fscks because "last
mount time was in the future" and stuff like that
FS#13070 / 13057 - grub-gfx installed instead of default grub : check
that you have the non-fancy grub
FS#13101 - simple fix to setup script writing timezone to rc.conf :
check that your choosen timezone is in rc.conf (you can probably check
this already during installation too)
