Installation hangs on a Asus P8P67 board


I am using ARCH_201108 image and install from a USB stick. However after booting and select to install, the installation hangs at the same place every time:

:: Mounted archiso volume successfully.
:: Mounting /cowspace (tmpfs) filesystem, size=75%...done.

please help... thanks!

Welcome zhangxiao,

I'm far from an expert - hopefully the experts will chime in soon.  But as a first check, did you do a checksum on the iso before installation?

I've installed arch on a half a dozen machines or so, and I've had a couple installer hangs - in each case it was due to a faulty iso image.  I felt quite foolish after staying up all night struggling only to find that a freshly downloaded iso installed perfectly.
