If 6.1 and 5.4 fail then it seems really likely that 5.5 will fail too.  
In your shoes I would start changing BIOS options one at a time - 
anything that might have an effect like ACPI, memory holes, making sure 
plug 'n' play is off.  I'm no expert on that kind of thing.  If no-one 
here has any better ideas then you could also try re-posting on the 
freebsd-hardware list and see if anyone there can help.  You could also 
check that there is no newer BIOS for the mobo.
