Okay I just tried the above snapshot and there are still problems -- I'm not
getting the BTX error message nor the infinite scrolling hex dump, but it
sits at loading /boot/default/loader.conf for about 5-10 seconds then does a
straight reboot without any discernable error message.
After doing some more digging, I found one suggestion from someone who
experienced a similar problem with an HP Pavilion ze2000 w/ amd64 turion
"Installation hangs at boot until you disable the apic and serial ports as
follows in the boot loader command line:
I'm going to try this and see if that helps. I don't really need the serial
ports on this laptop anyways, so maybe it will work.
If anyone has any other suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.
