Just a minor detail (but it helps for understanding each other)... You 
probably mean "in UEFI firmware", not "in BIOS". And yet, this is still 
not clear (at least, not to me).

You probably should double-check that you actually have a 
"syslinux.cfg" in the same directory where your "syslinux.efi" file is 
located. I would suggest also checking for typos.

Those are not accepted commands, so you cannot expect adequate results.

Perhaps you might want to start a forum topic in ArchLinux.
