just for the record, I just tried current snapshot from
and no go. BTX loader finds it though ( BIOS drive c: is disk0).
acpi on, no usb keyboard :( and no disk also.
I have OpenBSD on this disk, which I'll willing to wipe out to have
FreeBSD. but if I can get any info from OpenBSD that would help, just say
so. also, I'm downloading the livefs from this very current snapsjot, just
to see if I can save a verbose boot anyhow.
