When the loader menu pops up, choose the "escape to loader prompt" option,
then type 'set hint.mpt.0.msi_enable=0' followed by 'boot'. There's no
guarantee this will help, btw, just something to try out first.
If that doesn't work, you can also try setting 'machdep.kdb_on_nmi=0' using
the same trick.
If that still doesn't help, please boot another OS that does and get the
output of 'lspci -v' or 'pciconf -lvb' or equivalent so we can see exactly
which mpt adapter it is. I think there is one class of mpt(4) cards that
we do not yet support properly. Ah, yes, this PR:
I think this may in fact be your adapter. This was fixed after 9.0, so try
a 9.1-RC1 install disk instead and see if it works better.
