When the machine boots (when loader starts), you'll see the FreeBSD logo
with a menu of choices (boot, boot with ACPI disabled, single user mode,
etc.).  One of them is boot verbosely; I think it's #5, labelled "Boot
with verbose logging" or something like that.

Choose that.  That will cause your machine to boot with ACPI enabled, in
addition to booting verbosely.  There will be a LOT more information
printed on the screen during the boot process, and it should be visible
in /var/log/messages after the machine is started.  This is the
information we're looking for.
