https://bbs.archlinux.org – Thank you for the response Bullfrog. That is something that I thought of, and I did try all combinations of video card options in the BIOS (and including other devices). That did not change how it worked.I did find something very interesting, however. I installed Gentoo as a test and it worked without too much fuss. I made a backup of my /boot folder before wiping the drive and putting back Arch. After the reinstall, I was stuck in the same place. I took the kernel and initramfs from Gentoo and copied them to my /boot folder. I created new entries in Grub to do combinations of Arch/Gentoo file (HowTos)
