https://bbs.archlinux.org – I just felt that I should probably report this, or at least mention it to somebody... you know... just on the off chance that it isn't already common knowledge.I just downloaded the 2012.11.01 ISO and the dd'ed it onto a couple of different USB flash drives I own.  The other machines I have here seem to be entirely happy to boot from those, but when either USB flash drive is inserted into my HP 8530p while it is still in any of the BIOS setup screens, apparently, the very act of inserting the USB stick into the machine causes the whole machine to freeze up right where it is.&#16 (HowTos)
