What mode of USB install is included with the Dell computer.  Do they have USB-HDD or some other types?

Re: Install trouble arch64 ftp ISO from usb stick SOLVED

the bios lets me make the usb device the top of the boot order

I have it booting now, but when I hit enter, and it goes thouugh stuff, it gets an ERROR that root fs can not be detected.....
It reccomends adding a rootfstype=kernel parameter
I am trying to find out what the rootfstype= kernel paramter is, maybe vfat?
