FreeBSD installer crash on Epox + HighPoint 372

I'm trying to set up FreeBSD on an Epox 845 chipset motherboard, P4 1.3 with
a builtin HighPoint 372 RAID controller. The boot process would fail and it
would go into a boot-splashscreen-reboot cycle. Several BSD versions were
tried but to no avail.

I've also tried the HighPoint FreeBSD drivers for the 5.4 release, and after
loading the driver and typing 'boot', it would 'silently' crash and reboot.

Windows installation can go through on the system w/o RAID drivers without a
glitch, but not FreeBSD or Linux. I need to run a *nix box without any RAID.
The installation is to be done on a unpartitioned disk.

Does anybody has any info on resolving such a problem. Thanks.
