Hi. I've been trying to install FreeBSD 6.0 (amd64) from CD on my HP zv6130
notebook, so far without success. It's obviously a problem lots of people
have reported, from what I can see. 
I tried one suggestion, entering the following at the boot loader prompt:

set hw.acpi.skip_timer_override="1"
set hint.atkbd.0.flags="0x9"
set hint.acpi.0.disabled="1"

Yet it STILL hangs! I checked the installation ISO images, they're ok
according to the MD5 signatures. Pls if anyone has any further ideas, I
would be much obliged.
Oh, and I also tried:

 set hint.sio.0.disabled="1" 

- no luck there either.
