It boots over here.
The problem could be that you are trying to write an ISO image to a
thumb-drive.  The official ArchLinux installation media is provided in
two formats: one for CDs and one for USB devices.  Unfortunately, I don't
provide the USB images right now, because I have not
enabled USB booting on any of my machines.  I.E., I can't test them.
I would be happy to make a USB image for you, if you are willing to test it.
