Verbose boot console output at hang point

I am unable to install/run FreeBSD 11.1 on a brand-new HPE MicroServer Gen10
containing an AMD Opteron X3421 with 16GB RAM. The installer hangs just after
it prints:

pci0: <ACPI PCI bus> on pcib0

Please see attached console screenshot showing verbose output which suggests
that the boot process hangs just as it has collected information about the RAM
on pcib0. This is while booting from a USB (several tried and tested and
integrity validated) or when moving an existing pre-installed elsewhere system.
Same affects FreeNAS 11.0 on this system.

Switching off ACPI during boot causes a kernel panic with a message:

panic: running without device atpic requires a local APIC

Trying to set hint.apic.0.disabled=1 (tried with apic.0 till apic.3 on this
4-core machine) causes a different panic:

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode.

I have started a forum discussion about this issue:
https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/61936/

It has also been referred to on FreeNAS forum, as others have been affected:
https://forums.freenas.org/index.php?threads/installation-stop-after-a-few-seconds-on-a-microserver-gen10.56809/#post-399023

I only have a basic understanding of FreeBSD but I am a long-time IT
professional and I would be happy to submit further traces and try suggestions
to help debug it. As-is, it seems like FreeBSD is incompatible with HPE
Proliant MicroServer Gen10.

Thank you for your kind help.
