I'm saying you shouldn't have any problem with Arch because this shouldn't happen, since ARCH_201212 is way shorter. At least in Mint, when I do "sudo mount -o loop [iso file]", it appears in /dev/disk/by-label, confirmed by doing "sudo blkid /dev/loop[X]" (to see if I got the label right). Check This Out
A minimum amount of RAM between 500 MB and 1 GB should suffice for a MEMDISK based, Arch Linux install. so the line becomes "kernel /ubnkern archisolabel=YOUR_LABEL" or you can do when on interactive prompt "ls /dev/disk/by-label" and find out the label of your usb device before editing syslinux.cfg 眭文峰 (suiwenfeng) But it's time I need a working system again. After that, extract from the following files from the latest release of syslinux from here and copy them into the following folders. ./win32/syslinux.exe to the Desktop or Downloads folder on your
But if this issue still happens, I'd rather post this in case it actually helps someone. But if you formatted the entirety of /dev/sda to a filesystem (not a good idea), then you could mount just /dev/sda. This can take up less space on the thumb drive if the iso isn't compressed, and in theory can take up less space than a compressed iso, but I doubt that Note: Do not format the drive as FAT32 keep it as FAT16.

If you still can't make it work, try either using ArchBang (fastest option), the Netboot image, or an older snapshot of Arch (not too old, or it won't have systemd).
