         First of all, the force option is necessary as some packages
did need manual intervention.See [1] and [2].
         Arch uses an initramfs image that then boots up the actual
file-system. If you have the same error as shown in the forum link,
either grub is not configured properly (note that it uses grub-legacy
by default) or hooks have not been defined properly. Read [3] for
hooks, update them as needed in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and run
# mkinitcpio -p linux
as given in the forum link.

Hope this helps.
