I installed 8.3 on this server and did a makeworld into 9.0 REL (GENERIC kernel without USB support)

Now the bootup from drom disk stops with the message:
"Entropy harvesting: interrupts ethernet point_to_point"
and I cannot enter DDB (vga console, ctrl-alt-esc), although it is compiled into the kernel. 

However. I have the option to boot into single-user, before "Entropy harvesting: interrupts ethernet point_to_point" shows up.

FYI: Additionally I tried to boot the 9.0-RELEASE-AMD64 memstick on another HP/Compaq server (DL385 G2) and the bootup also stops with the same "mount waiting for: usbus1 usbus0" message, as the DL145G3 does.

Is DDB active on the 9.0-RELEASE-AMD64 memstick?
