n/a - cannot install OS
BTX loader halts when booting from various CDs that are using BTX loader version 1.02 - incl. FreeBSD 8.0, FreeBSD 7.2, FreeBSD 6.4, FreeBSD 8.0 LiveCD, and PCBSD.

FreeSBIE 2.0.1 with BTX loader version 1.01 works fine.

Boot process just halts with blinking cursor, Ctrl-Alt-Del not responsive.

Upgraded system BIOS, also ran MemTest86+ (no errors)

System has AMD 780V chipset
SATA device is ATI SB700/SB800

Have temporarily loaded Debian on system - no issues.
Booting from any of the mentioned media.
