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 
http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/archlinux/iso/2011.08.19/? Did you use core 
image or netinstall one?
