Probably HP is using a device which is not enabled in the stock FreeBSD
6.0 kernel. Does the output of a "dmesg" give you any clues ?
Compare the "dmesg" of the 4.11 boot and the one from the 6.0 boot with
each other, and see which device is causing the disks to be recognized
on 4.11, and recompile the kernel on 6.0 with that device in the kernel

Hints about how to do the recompiling can be found in the Handbook, on

It's most likely a driver issue, not a BIOS one.

look into this problem for you right away, to get the response you need
in a timely manner.
