Sounds like the same problem I experienced when installing
FreeBSD/AMD64 on a HP Pavillion dv8000 system.  This system doesn't
like to boot from the install media either, and would continuously
dump these hex register on the screen.  I was able to eventually
install from the CD by holding the the space bar down until the
speakers beeped for a couple of seconds (when you see
/boot/kernel/kernel you can release the space bar), then it loads and
executes the kernel and proceeds to sysinstall.

Give this a try, and see if it works for you.  If it ooes, send a
followup to PR 105514 with your systems information.

No electrons were mamed while sending this message. Only slightly bruised.
