Default Stuck on CD installation

Hi dear Community,

I have a problem while installing OpenBSD on a Laptop.(My first BSD-Installation)

Laptop: Acer 420 DLC

Processor: Intel Celeron 1,7 GHz
Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 32MB
RAM: 256 MB
HDD: 20 GB

These OS' worked fine:
- Windows XP
- Minix3
- Debian
- antiX

Bootloader is GRUB.

So, the error Message was:
npx0 at isa0 port 0xf0/16: reported by cpuid: using exception 16

It hangs there.

I found this thread: http://daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=10269 with the same issue.

So I tried to solve the problem like there:

boot> boot -c
UKC> verbose
UKC> quit

Last line where it hangs was: >>> probing for pcic2 failed

Additional to that I formatted the HDD with gparted in FAT32, but that didn't work either.

I never noticed any hardware problems...

I attached two pictures:

First: Hanging at npx0 at isa0 port 0xf0/16: reported by cpuid: using exception 16
Second: After verbose boot

Oh, and the install media was the i386 install63.iso (should be the right .iso)

Tested OpenBSD in VirtualBox on another Computer and it hangs there for a few seconds on the same line (npx0 at isa0 port 0xf0/16: reported by cpuid: using exception 16) but then it proceeds to installation without problems.

Any ideas?
