I got the same problem with Acer Aspire 5102 which has same cpu as
your AMD Turion64 X2 1.6 Ghz.

I'm sure it's related to the bios, I wonder why FreeBSD install CD
can't boot in some laptops while windows and Linux always can boot.

The ACPI has been updated in current, I don't know why you can't get
the FreeBSD install VD to boot at all.

Maybe some dev can shed the light on this.
