I would like to install FreeBSD-8.1 ia64, so I downloaded

When I boot from a burnt CD, the screen keeps black, with the
nothing else happend.
When I make an USB bootable stick, I've got a message saying that
/boot/loader was not found.

Having a look into /boot, I noticed that indeed, there's no loader anymore.
But there a loader.efi, which wasn't in FreeBSD-7.2-RELEASE (the last I
