Hey Jeff, yeah, I think we found the same issue here at work. One of our
FreeBSD devs is already working on a patchset with that and several
other fixes. I believe it's a problem with AHCI so see if you can
disable that from the BIOS. The patch will probably be in the next alpha
release of PC-BSD.
If I find another way to work around it, I'll post to the list!
