I'm getting a strange bug. Testing repositories are activated by default even if I answer no to their use. Virtualbox / Qemu bug ?!

I think it is due to the below code in /arch/setup install_bootloader() :

    ### HACK: Always enable TESTING for bootloaders, until syslinux will finally move to core,
    # due to PXE boot bug for archiso
    DOTESTING_OFF=""
    [[ "${DOTESTING}" = "" ]] && DOTESTING_OFF="1"
    [[ "${MODE}" = "network" ]] && DOTESTING="yes"
    pacman_conf
    [[ "${DOTESTING_OFF}" = "1" ]] &&  DOTESTING=""
    prepare_pacman
    CANCEL=""

This should be only the case for bootloaders and not for main package installation.

Isn't the version of syslinux that works with UEFI only in the testing repository?

Exactly this is the reason for this HACK in setup script.

Well, on my limited tests, testing was still activated after installation.

If running package installation from main menu and you said not to use testing it should not be activated.
I tested this on qemu and it doesn't enable testing.
You need to tell us which steps you did.

Just do a network install, and ask installer not to activate testing.

In post install configuration, when I open /etc/pacman.conf, testing lines are not commented.

I saw it both in qemu and virtualbox for a 64 bits installation.

Will try again asap.

Ok you talk about the pacman.conf in installed system, right?

Great ! This behaviour looked weird to me. I'm an testing user, but I thought it will be a problem for someone who doesn't want to activate testing.

I have strange problem. I wanted to do a fresh install on my 3 years old laptop. I installed windows 7 and after that put new archboot, but when I do this, it shows me: isolinux0.61 ETCD and after that its rebooting, and show this again and rebooting. A check dvd that I burn iso in another laptop and everything is good. I have never problem like this before.

Seems a bug in syslinux, archboot uses syslinux 6.01 to boot the iso. You could try if you can boot from usb stick.

There was a little problem to boot from pendrive. I used few method and program (like unebootin, LiLi etc) and only xboot helps me. I was unable only to used package on pendrive (only network instalation working).
But now I have another problem
For sda1 is installed windows 7
on sda2 I put arch (ext4)
and sda5 - linux-swap
But when system is booting (systemd shows) it slows and have problem with linux partition
video on youtube
I can install software, but I dont know is this a big problem? It takes a while when I can log in (as it`s show in video).

Could be a bug in systemd, which should be solved with systemd-208.
systemd-207 had lot of issues, which are probably not all been solved with the used systemd version on media, especially with swap partitions.
