I don't have a way at the moment for you to roll your own ISO / set of 
PC-BSD. However can you boot the install CD into single user mode also, 
then disable usbd in rc.conf, and continue booting to the installer? 
That may help you get around this crash, and at least get the system 
installed. Once the system is up, then you can patch / re-roll the 
kernel any way you need.
