This beta board runs coreboot, which is GPL'ed software. This means that it
is possible to submit a contribution that lets you boot FreeBSD 9.2 and 10.

Working with PC Engines to come up with a solution is the right way.

FWIW, I can boot FreeBSD 9.2 just fine on amd64 hardware (ASUS F2A85-M)
that also starts with coreboot.
FreeBSD has working on the issue from two directions.

1) John Baldwin <j...@freebsd.org> has made software changes to FreeBSD
head that work around the issue 
(http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&sortby=date&revision=261243).  
This issue was to be MFCed a few weeks back.
I am sure that John will MFC it at some point.

2) I worked with Jung-uk Kim <j...@freebsd.org> to develop BIOS patches to
give to PC Engines to provide back to SAGE.  I received an updated BIOS
with this change the end of last week.

Hi,
I just got one of these boards to evaluate. I was trying to load the watchdog, but no luck. There seem to be a few other errors too

amdsbwd0: ResetStatus0 = 0xf9
amdsbwd0: ResetStatus1 = 0x0b

USB seems to have some issues as well

not sure of the NIC errors are issues too ?
