So you want specific instructions to fix a vague problem description?
First, state precisely how "ACPI is not working" and the perhaps
someone can tell you what to do. Also, is this "Acer Ferrari 4005
wmli" machine i386 or amd64?
Are you booting from CD to install or what? Upgrade?
You should also try backing to 6.1-RELEASE CD and see what happens.
I'll put on my mindreader hat and guess that you probably need to
just disable the ACPI timer. You do that at the boot menu by
escaping to the boot prompt (option 6) then typing
then type 'boot'. To make it permanent, put the above line without
the word "set" into /boot/loader.conf
