As Mike has suggested give FreeBSD/AMD64 6.1-RC2 a try.

If you have a problem with the boot loader crashing after it loads
/boot/loader.conf from the install CD, just power off and on the
system, then when you see the boot loader, repeatedly hit the space
bar, until you see that it is loading /boot/kernel/kernel.  After
this, it will then be able to load the system installer, and allow you
to install the system.  When the system is installed you'll have no
problem booting the system from the harddrive.

This is what I had to do on my HP Pavilion dv8xxx (AMD Turion 64 ML-37) System.
