when I boot Arch Linux, it boots fine in some cases, and then in other cases it doesn't. The kernel messages are always the same (note also the times in seconds):
Do not use full size images. Use an image hosting site. --- Inxsible
He doesn't find /dev/sda1, which is my root partition. I use UUIDs in my /etc/fstab, I'm not sure if that plays a role.
Those 30-second-waiting-periods shown in the image do not occur when he boots fine.
Does anyone know where I can begin searching for the error? I don't even know if it's a software or hardware issue.

I have a very similar problem that appeared after a recent update - https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1189688. The log output is very similar too.

Tried to boot latest Arch iso, it can't mount /dev/disk/by-label/ARCH...:
Waiting 30 seconds for device /dev/disk/by-label/ARCH...
In /dev I have sda but no sda1, sda2 etc.
You say this in your other thread. The same happens for me. The iso on a USB stick can't mount itself and the boot procedure just hangs there. Other isos on the same USB stick (I tried Ubuntu) boot fine.
I fixed my problem (see the other thread), perhaps it could help you too.
Alright, thanks! I downloaded the two packages here:
Will reboot a few times later today and report back in

There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots !
