OK, I did had to wade through the only documentation too, as I 
did not see an installer recently. ;)

During the FreeBSD boot menu (with the several options to 
choose), use "2. Escape to loader prompt". There you need to type 
the following lines:

set hint.mpt.0.msi_enable="0"

Hopefully this should do the trick, but this needs to be done 
again after the system is installed, until you have set the 
option in the /boot/loader.conf.
