I'd recommend you burn one of the snapshot livefs images to a CD and
boot it.  This is what I was implying the first time around.  It should
give you a live FreeBSD system with common utilities.

I don't understand what this means.  "When I reboot after booting into
the sysinstaller".  Are you talking about FreeBSD sysinstall?

Otherwise, any situation where the BIOS does not boot your hard disks
sounds more like a BIOS or system problem and definitely has nothing to
do with FreeBSD.
