I'm trying to install arch on UEFI board and everything seems to be fine until my laptop decides to stop working without telling what's wrong..
Installation process goes like this:
1) Create UEFI bootable USB according to wiki https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/UE … B_from_ISO
2) Don't know if it's important but at boot I've got output like this
[sdb] No caching page mode present [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
sdb - USB stick
3) partition my disk with GPT
sda1 EFI 512MB /mnt/boot/efi sda2 swap 2GB sda3 root 20GB /mnt sda4 home rest /mnt/home
4) format partition and mount them.
5) this step depends on time when freez occures which (I think) is random. Most of the time it happens during
# pacstrap -i /mnt base base-devel
but once it was just before configuring bootloader so I can't really tell exact moment.
Basically I'm stuck and I've no idea how to make it work, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Laptop is Asus eeePC 1225c
If I can provide any more information please tell me, because without any error message I'm just guessing what might be importatnt.

That very vague information. It may not even be an "arch" distribution problem.
Actually it may be a computer issue! (Overheating, hard drive issue, bad ram module, etc...). Or perhaps a buggy kernel module loaded for your hardware!
After checking temerature and running memtest86+ (no errors found) I've decided to give it a try without UEFI and menaged to install the system : )
so I guess subject can be closed.
