 Did you say you could get the system installed by turning off
 acpi in /boot/loader.conf with
 
 set hint.acpi.0.disabled="1"
 
 If so, it may be that hint.acpi.0.disabled="1" is not being added
 to /boot/loader.conf by sysinstall.  If that is the case then
 once the system is installed and you reboot it, interrupt the
 boot and put the set hint.acpi.0.disabled="1" a second time, then
 once the system has booted, hand edit /boot/loader.conf and
 add this.
 
 ACPI has been reported to be broken on other hardware, it appears
 to be like the other PC "standards" full of exceptions.
