Okay, I did what you requested:
ACPI and APIC enabled, kern.smp.disabled="1" in /boot/loader.conf
Laptop hangs after this strings:

module_register_init: MOD_LOAD (amr_linux, 0xffffffff8062a040, 0) error 6
acd0: DVDR <TSSTcorpCD/DVDW TS-L632D/AS04> at ata0-master UDMA33
ad2: 95396MB <HTS541010G9AT00 MBZOA60A> at ata1-master UDMA100

No progress in about 5 minutes, though it's not completely freezed. If
I press power button something is echoed to screen about ACPI being
not ready.
