It is not just the boot CD. I just completed an upgrade from
8.2-RELEASE-p2 (based on the mfsBSD special edition image) to 9.0-RC2
via freebsd-update following the release instructions . After the
first reboot I experienced the exact same freeze as initially reported.
When doing the upgrade, I noticed /boot/device.hints had an addition for
attimer.0. I'll next try to get 9.0-RC2 to boot without ACPI (I'll try
removing that hint).
