Hmm. This sounds like what I am experiencing. I just sent a message to
this list (actually, I tried sending it last week, but it didn't go through.
I changed outgoing mail servers and it worked instantly) that details my
problems, and it does sound like yours. Unfortunately, there seems to be
very little common ground. My system has a VIA Apollo Pro 133T chipset.
The thing that kills my boot is the ASUS X Series V9400 video card. It is
an NVidia GeForce MX 4000 based card. Maybe the NVidia connection between
our issues is significant.

I've been trying to install FreeBSD 5.3 on a small form factor PC
(Biostar IDEQ) with the Nforce 2 chipset. The problem I've been having
is that the installer freezes up right after it detects the hard drive
and cd drive. I've been toggling BIOS settings for a couple hours now,
and nothing seems to work. Also tried the 5.4 RC2, with the same
results. Has anyone seen something similar and know of a workaround?
