archlinux-2017.03.01-dual UEFI boot stuck at rootfs

First off, this is my first post!
Before I tried to install , I verified the image with MD5 checksum! Used Rufus (GPT for UEFI with FAT32 ), Win32 Image writer and mac os sierra dd to create a usb bootable Archlinux key. Every time I try to boot the usb I get to the same rootfs.

System Specification:
Lenovo Y70-70 Touch Hashwell Processor
i7-4710HQ 8GB GTX 860M
UEFI: Enabled | Secured Boot: Disabled

Tried the same image file on the VirtualBox with UEFI enabled , it worked fine but it doesn't work when I try to install on my physical laptop.Tried all the USB ports, it kept showing me the same issue. 

rootfs

I have already tried to search answers from this forum but could not identify or I have missed something on the way!
Please guide me through this issue...
I am ready to provide you relevant information for this scenario

Please post the *exact* `dd` command that you used.

Note that Rufus only works if "DD" [sic] mode is selected.

You forgot to flush the buffers:

sudo dd if=path/to/arch.iso of=/dev/disk2 bs=1m; sync

Re: archlinux-2017.03.01-dual UEFI boot stuck at rootfs

This is a common problem (I don't know how you searched and didn't find other threads on it).  The problem is the tool you used to make the usb apparently did not give assign the label ARCH_201703.  If there are any options in Rufus (never used it myself) for labeling the drive, try that.

I don't know about a dd option for rufus, but the "Label" is right there - the only text field in the image you provided.  That label should be the iso label.  In this case it'd be "ARCH_201703".
