Please see the below thread. Do not let the subject stop you from
I still can't find a present-day RELENG_7 SNAPSHOT that I can tell
people to download. There isn't one in the snapshots/200803/ directory
past March 14th, and the snapshots/2008/04/ directory only contains
snapshots for ia64 and powerpc.
I'm left to believe David Overton built his own ISO. It sounds as if
you may have to do the same.
And I can't explain what GRUB is doing.

Not enough information to help debug this, but DMA timeouts are a known
problem right now, regardless of controller:
Scott Long may be able to help track this problem down for you, but more
details are needed.

Debugging the bootstraps is an incredibly tedious process at this point.
No, it's not easy.
