This belongs in freebsd-questions unless you have reasonable grounds
to believe the problem is ACPI related.

Note that FreeBSD 8.1 has been superceded by FreeBSD 8.2, which is
available for download from (eg)
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ISO-IMAGES-i386/8.2/

Do you know which FreeBSD 8.1 image you have?

That's unlikely unless you burnt the CD/DVD on that system and it
was corruted by malware on the system.

Is there a reason you are using option #6 instead of allowing it to
boot normally?

I'm not sure if that's what was displayed or you've mis-typed the
message but the correct path is:
/sbin/init:/sbin/oinit:/sbin/init.bak:/rescue/init:/stand/sysinstall
(and it should be loading /stand/sysinstall)

I suspect you either have a corrupt CD/DVD image or (possibly) are
using the bootonly image instead of one of the installation images.
If you have a valid installation image, the screen or so of output
prior to that message would help with debugging - you could take a
digital photo of the screen and post a link.
