I found my issues seemed to be related to the bge controller in the
machine and setting the tunable:
resolved the problem for me and the machine would reliably boot and
has worked flawlessly since, have you tried that at all?
I've seen other people mentioning similar issues with bge0 in HP
machines not working with 8.0
This tunable defaults to 0 on RELENG_7, but 1 on RELENG_8 might be
worth changing it back if it makes a lot of machine unbootable?
