Can't boot - just seeing a blinking underscore

I had ARCH linux working for quite a few months until recently, when it simply won't boot (all I see is a blinking underscore). I have a UEFI motherboard and I userEFInd. I can only assume this is due to the new version of rEFInd, with auto-scanning for kernel images and whatnot, but I've followed the UEFI installation guide & installation guides line by line, several times over, and I still can't get the OS to boot.

Anyone have any ideas? Thank you so much.
