It may be due to this:
I tried to install a SCSI card that uses the sym driver on my amd64
machine last week and it had a panic with the same message. It works
fine in an i386 machine but I am unable to use it on my amd64 box.
Someone sent me the card for free and I already have an Adaptec on order
to use with the amd64, but from what I understand that driver doesn't
work with amd64 yet.
If possible, try removing the SCSI card and then trying to boot. It
should work then.
