    So, I decided to get off my butt and install Arch Linux, but I seem to have run into a problem.

    I got into the main menu, selected to boot Arch, and arch started booting. Soon after, I started getting errors like the following: [ 10.759732] blk_update_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 1436248

    Messages like this happened 5 times, then arch started to grab hooks.

    Then, after mounting /dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201602 to /run/archiso/bootmnt, it said "Waiting 30 seconds for device /dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201602..."

    It then errored out and threw me into a shell command line. I know the disk burned sucessfully, and the ISO wasn't tampered with, so... Any Ideas?

    Seems like your cd has issues.

    Ok, so, update: Was able to rig up a way to boot from USB, tried writing the image to a USB, and now I no longer get the I/O errors I was getting, but I still got this message: "Waiting 30 seconds for device /dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201602..." and I still got thrown out to the command line. Tried 2 different USB, re-downloaded the ISO and re-verified the MD5 hash of it, and I'm still getting this error. :|
