I have installed my freebsd os with acpi disabled finally. But I could
only enter the system with acpi disable and I will get the "system
halt , press any key to reboot" result if I "shutdown -p" the system,
how to deal with it? I have tried amd64 and i386 version, the amd64
version show the cpu as k8-class and the i386 version show it as
686-class, and there are some errors on the amd64 version but the i386
version run without error messages show up, shouldn't I choose the
amd64 version?
