I want to erase my harddisc and install Arch.
The problem is: ever since 2013/03 the install mediums won't boot on my computer. They use gummiboot which does not work for me (and many others). A bug report is filed here but has low priority (for reasons that I don't understand. it prevents people from even booting the live medium. probably because it is most likely an upstream problem?).
The last install medium that worked was 2013/02.
The question is: Is it possible to just boot this live medium and still install Arch with the newest packages without problems?
Any help is much appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

It's only a live disk, you always install up to date packages.
If yo have any problems, just come here and post the error messages etc/
I've been using the 201305 installation disk for a few months, and it seems to be working fine. However, once another big change happens, I'll have to use a new media.
