Default Instant reboot with 7.0-RELEASE

After installing 7.0-RELEASE on an asus a7n266 motherboard with athlon-xp cpu, the new system never gets to the prompt and constantly reboots. Since the installation cd actually booted and completed the install, I'm not sure of the problem.

I can install and boot into 6.3-RELEASE, copy the GENERIC kernel from 7.0 and that works.

EDIT: I have added nvidia_load="YES" to loader.conf and now the 6.3 install has similar behaviour, except I can see that it loads nvidia and then reboots. After removing that line from loader.conf, the options menu is reached and I can load nvidia from the loader prompt with no further problems. Is there any way to prevent the module from being loaded prematurely, but loaded during the boot process?
