I actually managed to get it running without even having to turn any knobs
in loader(8)

BIOS upgrade from 4.06.25 PN to 4.06.26 PN solved the case.

According to HP:
"Fix hang problem during Windows 2000 installation on E60 systems with
motherboard containing a new version of Winbond Super I/O chipset

Apparently this also fixes hang problem with FreeBSD newer than 4.7
Why it broke somewhere between 4.7 and 4.8 is beyond me, but I don't really
care about that now :)
