systemd fails on boot

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – After running systemd with absolutely no issues for a good month or two, my arch setup fails to boot with a cascade of errors, the first of which is[Failed] Failed to start Setup Virtual ConsoleConsequently, I can't even get a terminal to attempt diagnostics. Using a live CD to create /var/log/journal/ for persistent logs (as instructed by the wiki) seems useless as nothing is saved to that directory.Are there any diagnostic or repair steps I can take, or is my best bet to back up my files off of that partition and reinstall Arch? slavik262 https://bbs.archlinux.org/profile.php?i (HowTos)
