Not possible - if I disable USB in BIOS, there is another problem during the boot process. It hangs on "Mounting root from ufs:/dev/md0" (NOT a freeze, I suppose, since numlock is still working).
The system freezes on boot just after the menu (with the daemon on the right side). It doesn't matter if I choose to boot without ACPI or any other option. Right after hitting RETURN this "progress-thingy" (sorry for my bad english) in the lower left corner shows up and then stops after few seconds. I encountered exactly the same error with FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-AMD64. My mainboard is an FSC D1607 - without the latest BIOS version, because there is nothing in the changelogs that looks like it could help to solve the problem.
Just press RESET and try to install FreeBSD again.
Disable USB in BIOS completely.
