I seem not to be able to get archlinux boot in vmware using grub. The best result is:
Grub loading stage 1.5
Grub loading, please wait ...
and thats it.
I tried it several hundred times, and besides some kernel panics here and then I can't go any further. I tried lilo, and it worked. Installing grub after lilo will result in boot freezes again.
Any one else having those problems?

I use grub to start archliunux in vmware workstation.
Apart from having to add noapic to get around kernel panics while booting, i had no problems.
I had troubles with the vmware SCSI drives, so i removed them and added a vmware IDE drive
Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
I've never had such problems with grub in vmware. And I don't add noapic or any other options. But I use IDE disks instead of SCSI.
