Thanks, but that didn't work either trying 7.1-BETA2 amd64 :(

Forgot to mention I added memory to this server as well, took it from
2GB it was using under 5.4-RELEASE up to 6GB filling all slots, that is
why I wanted to load amd64. I reduced down to 4GB and now am able to
install 7.0-RELEASE i386. Does this mean that I may have a hardware
issue or can FreeBSD produce the page fault I was getting when using
over 4GB with i386? I would love to figure out this BTX halted issue
instead...any ideas on that?
