If you are using an initrd without the
udev hook, mounting of additional LVM partitions will fail during boot. Add
udev to your mkinitcpio hooks and rebuild the initrd.

Display manager fails to load with fast SSD
I was having a problem with my display manager (LXDM) not loading on my laptop, which has a Sandisk Extreme SSD. Xorg.log would show errors like "No screens found."
I eventually figured out that the problem was that my computer was booting so fast that KMS didn't have enough time to kick in before X was started. I solved by adding the KMS driver (i915 in my case) to the initramfs.
- This is a general problem that needs to be solved in the display manager. GDM already implements the bits for the CanGraphical flag.
Bootloader kernel parameter
- You're right, pacman says
/bin/systemd, which is a symlink to
/usr/lib/systemd/systemd. Both might work, though I prefer to stick with the pacman message. Traced the wiki discrepancy back to this edit and the following ones.

a reboot using systemd is necessary before enabling services, which isn't mentioned in the installation overview. I've added it, but if I'm incorrect on this feel free to revert it and (for my benefit) explain.

- No need reboot for enabling services.
