What do I need to do to get this to install?

Try looking for a BIOS update for your laptop, and try disabling what you can in the BIOS config, and/or turning the disk & CD/DVD-ROM drive from UDMA to PIO temporarily.

You might also try booting from a 32-bit x86 version of FreeBSD and see whether that does any better. More info about your hardware would also be helpful...
