i have an amd athlon with an nvidia video card that freebsd v7.0-RELEASE locks
the last thing mine says is hptrr (there is something about rocketraid
raid device in teh dmesg) "no device found'

if i disable acpi (by booting in safe mode) all works well the
installation completes, the machine works well at least so far ... 

hope this helps
