Error installing 5.3-release before sysinstall

I am attempting to upgrade my system from 4.9 to 5.3-RELEASE. I removed my
4.9 partition using /stand/sysinstall. Next, I booted from the mininstall CD,
and a menu with the beastie and seven boot options is presented. When I
attempt any of the boot options, it gives errors and warns me of an "Automatic
reboot in 15 seconds".
The lines leading up to this warning are:
ep0: eeprom failed ot come ready.
ep0: ep_alloc() failed! (6)
panic: resource_list_release: resource entry is not busy
Shutting down ACPI
If I choose too boot without ACPI, then that particular warning is removed.
I am able to "exit to loader prompt" from the initial menu, but I cannot (that
I know of) run /stand/sysinstall to begin the installation from here.
Booting in Safe Mode and Single User Mode fail similarly.
What should I do to properly install FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE?
The PC is an older Gateway Essential, with a Pentium III chip in it. It has
Windows 2000 currently installed on a separate partition.
