Try man acpi:
To disable the acpi driver completely, set the kernel environment vari-
able hint.acpi.0.disabled to 1. Some i386 machines totally fail to oper-
ate with some or all of ACPI disabled. Other i386 machines fail with
ACPI enabled. Non-i386 platforms do not support operating systems which
do not use ACPI. Disabling all or part of ACPI on non-i386 platforms may
result in a non-functional system.
Hints can go in /boot/loader.conf. Later, after the system is working for
you, you can go back and install a new BIOS and see if that fixes the
problem with ACPI enabled.
