Problem with AMD-Sempron ?

Dear People, 

I tried numerous times to install FreeBSD-5.3-Release
on a AMD-Sempron machine without success. The install
completes without a hitch but during reboot, it
complaints that no no system disc was found. Booting
from other machines with different cpus is okay. 

The specs of the cpu is : 

vendor_id       : AuthenticAMD
cpu family      : 6
model           : 8
model name      : AMD Sempron(tm)   2200+
stepping        : 1
cpu MHz         : 1501.031
cache size      : 256 KB

Is this a known bug ? Does 5.4 address this issue ?
