There is a possibility that the machine contains various components
which are not fully supported in FreeBSD/amd64. What happens if you try
booting FreeBSD/i386 instead?
I know this may not be the most satisfying suggestion, but if it's that
or not getting the machine to boot at all, well, there it is. I'd
venture a guess that whichever software came with the machine originally
is not quite 64 bit clean either.
