You should try creating a UEFI Boot stick, as described here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/UE … B_from_ISO

thx,i have create the usb stick as the wiki says,but i make a mistake before.my usb has been formated to vfat before,so when i use df i can see sdb sdb1,i mount /dev/sdb1 /tmp/archusb,and do the following ... so i can boot from usb.
now i do mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb and then mount /dev/sdb /tmp/archusb ,adn do the following,now i can boot from usb.
another problem same as this question says:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=151599

/arch/boot/x86_64 not exist is solved
there maybe a bug in bsdtar,the arch dir is not extract with the name /arch but with some string that can not be recognized

another problem:

my network card is atheros 8161 and i can not connect to the internet,what should i do ?

I've been running into similar problems.  I just can't get Arch installation media to boot in UEFI mode (get the blank screen with blinking cursor) on my home-built computer (Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H motherboard).  I think probably the best way to get around these issues at the moment is to install in BIOS mode and then manually rearrange the files and settings needed for UEFI boot.

For me, I think I'm just going to bite the bullet and switch to a BIOS install for now.

Download
x86_64 UEFI Shell 2.0 (Beta)

copy it to /EFI/boot/bootx64.efi

create a startup.nsh in /EFI/boot :

        fs0:
        cd fs0:\arch\boot\x86_64
        echo "Launching Arch Linux ISO Kernel fs0:\EFI\archiso\vmlinuz.efi"
        vmlinuz archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=ARCH_201211 initrd=\arch\boot\x86_64\archiso.img

boot in UEFI mode wait for startup.nsh to be executed , be Happy wink

Worked on my brand new Gigabyte H77-D3H

PS.: maybe you have to change  archisolabel= to the label of your Usbstick
