What are the exact errors?
Sometime arch isos do tend to have hit and miss w.r.t install. I don't even
remember what iso I installed from, let alone having it available handy.
If you could post your hardware config, I would try to replicate it in a
virtualbox env. with as close reproduction as possible.
Are you using something like

image or netinstall one?
