    I've tried this several times and I've received the same error every time.
    Code:
    :: Mounting '/dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201602' to 'run/archiso/bootmnt'
    Waiting 30 seconds for device /dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201602 ...
    ERROR: '/dev/disk/by-label/ARCH_201602' device did not show up after 30 seconds...
    Falling back to interactive prompt
    You can try to fix the problem manually, log out when you are finished
    sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
    I get this error every time, maybe even in a different format or with a different problem.
    I've tried renaming my drives to ARCH_201602 and that didn't help either (It was the recommended solution). Any suggestions/help? This may be a horrible place to ask, but I said earlier I was going to attempt to install it again xD

    Edit: My method I usually use to install is going into VBOX and installing Arch to my hard drive from there. Perhaps there is something different I should try? I would try unetbootin, but I don't want to risk accidentally deleting my main hard drive
