I booted (virtualbox 2.1.2) the archlinux-2009.01-beta2-core-x86_64.iso
and display these two errors messages at startup:

:: Running Hook [archiso-early]
/init: 9: cannot create /: Is a directory
/init: 9: /etc/modprobe.d/usb-delay: not found
:: Running Hook [udev]

The instalation runs OK, but when installing GRUB, this not installed.
/arch/setup, display that are installed OK but in /tmp/grub.log

The file /mnt/boot/grub/stage1 not read correctly.

I used the same configuration of partitions and filesystems that with i686

sda1 / with EXt3 or EXT4
sda5 /var
sda6 /home

Trying to installing manual with grub-install fail with the same error.
md5sum of the stage1 are OK.
