So, your machine is booting but the graphical login does not work. Press
Ctrl+Alt(left)+F1. You will get a text console login where you should
type root (as user) and your password when it asks you. (It will only
show asterisks as the characters of the password for security reasons.)
Then, you can type pacman -Syu.

Hope it helps. :-)
