I see. It sounds like Codec issues.

You can disable ACPI in loader. If you use beastie menu you can find
a menu item that disables ACPI(probably Safe Mode). If you don't use
beastie menu then you will see a message "Hit [Enter] to boot
immediately, or any other key for command prompt." In that screen,
just press SPACE bar to get OK prompt. Once you get the prompt enter
"set hint.acpi.0.disabled=1" and then enter "boot". Note, depending
on your system booting kernel without ACPI may not work at all.

Oops.. It's typo. It should be read "pciconf -r pci0:8:0 0:0xff".
