Well, I read the errata. Unfortunately, I am using GRUB as my boot loader (this system runs win xp, linux, openbsd, and freebsd), which doesn't support ufs2, so I have to boot FreeBSD 5+ indirectly using grub's chainloading. I am therefore unable to pass any kernel options, and I don't have FreeBSD's boot loader installed, which I assume is where you boot "safe mode" from. Is there any other way to turn off ACPI?
