FreeBSD/i386 bootstrap loader, Revision 1.1
(sullrich@FreeBSD_8.0_pfSense_2.0-snaps.pfsense.org, Wed Sep 23 10:04:49 UTC 2009)
Loading /boot/defaults/loader.conf

Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or any other key for command prompt.
Booting [/boot/kernel/kernel]...

And then nothing else happens. The box is NOT locked up as I see the hard disk light blinking. If testing on a alix I can ping 192.168.1.1 once the box has booted.

sio was replaced with uart which we had already taken care of. but it seems that isa probing is no longer happening so we needed add some device.hints:

set hint.uart.0.at="isa" 
set hint.uart.0.port="0x3F8"
set hint.uart.0.flags="0x10"
set hint.uart.0.irq="4"
