These AMIs ship with Arch linux kernels that are booted by PV-GRUB.
(2012-01-14) - The 64 bit AMIs consistently failed to boot on Micro instances in us-east-1a and us-east-1d. In us-east-1b and us-east-1c the AMIs intermittently fail to boot. Stop and start the instance to reassign it a random machine in these cases.
This may be an issue with Amazon running different versions of Xen on different machines / older availability zones.
