Comment:

 Unfortunately looks like it is not the problem of video drivers. I have
 been using exactly the same version of video driver with few Linux
 distributions and everything was fine. Only PC-PBD doesn't boot. The
 second argument showing that this is internal problem of PC-BSD is that
 the vesa mode gives the same result - this means black screen. I think it
 has something in common with your installer. Looks like it gets confused
 by the presence of two primary graphics devices and freezes at startup. I
 haven't tested 8.1 RC1 but today i have tried to boot the new 8.1 final.
 No improvement - still I am not able to get the installer running on my
 laptop. So the problem is still not solved.
