New AOpen AX4SPE-UN Motherboard fails to boot -CURRENT ...

Last system upgrade from CVSup was done on June 11th, so I'm running a new 
system.  That aside ...

I've been running an AX4B-533 motherboard for the longest time, but, in 
order to make use of an SATA drive I just bought, I figured I'd upgrade 
the motherboard instead of buying an interface card ... got the 
motherboard, transfer'd all my old components to the new one ... and boot 

First note ... I didn't have the SATA drive in yet, was still using the 
old IDE drives ...

I can get to the BIOS, it recognizes my drives ... it gets to the boot 
blocks, where I can hit F1 to go to FreeBSD ... then it just sits there 
indefinitely ...

I know that hitting F1 has done something, since the screen scrolls up a 
couple of lines, same as when it boots normally, but instead of getting 
that 'twirling -' that I would expect, nothing ...

Has anyone had experience with the AX4SPE-UN board?  Is there something 
semi-obvious I should be trying?

Thanks ...
