Default FBSD 7 cd boot-only, kernel panic

Upon trying to start a FreeBSD installation I am getting a kernel panic with the message (of what I could get in the 15 seconds before an auto reboot):

Something about VGA (which I dont have, its PCIE)

panic ohci-add-done: addr (some memory address here)

Then a message about rebooting in 15 seconds unless I hit a key, which does nothing since the keyboard is unresponsive.

I've tried removing the pcie card (nvidia 7300 GT) and booting with the onboard video (nvidia 6100 LE) but the same thing happens. I've tried booting in regular, no apci, and safe mode. I've turned plug and play os both on and off in the BIOS, same thing. In a nutshell it seems to be having a problem with memory allocation and then panics. Any suggestions?
The board is and ASUS A8N-LA with a socket 939. Further details about the board can be found here:
