You can't disable PCI devices from "user config" yet in FreeBSD, but you
should kill anything that you don't have in the system. scd0 is the
Sony CDROM device (uses a proprietary CDROM bus) and I doubt you have one.
The aic driver is for the Adaptec aic6360/6260 parts and should not even
appear in the CAM boot floppy as CAM does not support that device (yet).
Are you positive you have the correct floppy?

Don't try doing this from userconfig. It is known to cause problems.
The correct way to determine exactly what happened is to disable all
probes you don't need, let the system boot up to the installation menu,
then hit <scroll-lock> followed by <pg-up> to review the boot messages.
