Can't boot via UEFI on ThinkPad T430

https://bbs.archlinux.org – You know I spent quite some time trying to get EFI Stub Loader to boot.  I too was getting the 'failed to laod initrd' message.  What it turned out to be is that it did not like having the initramfs within the /EFI/arch directory.  For sh*t's and giggles (mostly sh*ts), I moved it to the root of the EFI system partition, and it started working.  Also, if you try and boot from the UEFI Shell, you still have to pass the root= on the kernel command line.  So for instance, mine would be fs0: vmlinuz-linux.efi root=/dev/sdb3 ro initrd=\initramfs-linux.imgWhat (HowTos)
