I am trying my first install on the new installation media 10-6. Everything seemed to go smoothly until I rebooted. Now boot hangs at Filesystem is clean. The full message I am stuck on is below.
fsck.jfs version 1.1.15, 04-Mar-2011 processing started: 10/31/2012 11:23:56 The current device is: /dev/sda3 Block size in bytes: 4096 Filesystem size in blocks: 14080972 **Phase 0 - Replay Journal Log Filesystem is clean.
Then I have nothing. The computer is a lenovo thinkpad t420. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Some progress has been made, I manually added init=/usr/lib/systemd/systemd to the grub.cfg, now I get to
Reached target local file systems (Pre) Mounting /tmp Starting Load Random Seed Started Load Kernel Modules started Load Random Seed Mounted /tmp Started udev coldplug all devices
There were no failures, all messages are ok, but system won't boot.
I ran into something similar yesterday.. I'm not sure it's the same problem but here's what I tried and found.
*After an unsucessful boot, restart your computer and boot off the installation media
*Mount your paritions on /mnt as you would for a fresh install.
*Run arch-chroot /mnt to chroot into your installation.
*Now you can run journalctl to see all messages logged during boot. There will be a ton of them, so hit 'G' to scroll to the bottom.
*Look for messages in red or white.
Now, in my case I found some errors from nouveau and dri. After those errors, the logs went on to show that the system fully booted, although I never got past the fsck step on the screen. A bit of searching found posts about problems with nouveau and dual graphics cards (I have on-board GPU + a Nvidia card). Some posts mentioned adding the nomodeset option to your kernel line in grub. Doing this allowed me to boot up, and after installing the nvidia driver, I was able to remove this option and still boot.
Hope this helps.
Edit: grub config with nomodeset
..... echo 'Loading Linux core repo kernel ...' linux /vmlinuz-linux root=UUID=e7975760-f032-438a-b38d-93bc03246e96 ro nomodeset echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...' initrd /initramfs-linux.img ......

Thanks, the onboard and nvidia card was what was tossing it. I disabled the nvidia card for now and no more issues. I will go back to fight with it when I get more time.
