Comment (by gef_f):

 I tested these. One note, the mesg log says it recognizes the Optimus and
 attempts to use intel. This has been consistent with both working and not
 working versions.

 Test 1 (kldunload nvidia)
 This did not work. The nvidia module was not in the loaded modules.
 However, I tested the opposite and loaded the nvidia module. This did not
 result in success.

 Test 2 (xorg.conf edit)
 This did work. I added the BusID exactly as instructed. Started the X. The
 graphical installer started and I continued and installed the PC-BSD.
 However, in the first boot, the X server again hangs exactly the same way
 as in the installer without the xorg.conf edit.
