After 6-7 reboots, I managed to get the 7.2-RELEASE installation media to
boot and install properly.

2 issues still remain however.

1) No sound : My Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H board has onboard Realtek High
Definition Audio. Since I couldn't figure out which driver would work with
this, I put sound_enable=YES and snd_driver_load=YES in loader.conf to load
all available drivers. Gnome's Volume Control applet still remains crossed
out in red, which would mean the system couldn't locate an appropriate

2) No mouse : I am using a Logitech USB mouse and my rc.conf has
moused_enable=YES, along with entries for the AUTO protocol and the
/dev/ums0 device. However, at boot-time I get the message "Module uhub/ums
failed to load : 17" followed by a complaint by moused that /dev/ums0 does
not exist. There is no mouse cursor on the console at the time I get to the
login prompt. There is a wierd way however of getting the mouse to work.
Change it from one USB port to another 1-2 times and finally the kernel
picks up the mouse and creates /dev/ums0, after which the cursor appears and
the mouse works okay. But I have to do this everytime I boot FreeBSD, which
doesn't look an attractive option at all.

Can somebody please help me with either/both of these issues ?

Thanks in advance.
