Anyone know what this means ?

pnpbios: Bad PnP BIOS data checksum

So far, everything worked pretty good for me, so I'm pretty confused as to what's possibly failing. I have looked over the archive and the only answer was FreeBSD simply refused to use the information from existing PnP BIOS in this case due to bad checksum calculation. Does it use its own BIOS code then ?

'dmesg -a' output up to the error message :
