I get this:

ad1: READ command timeout tag=0 serv=0 - resetting

and then it hangs, can't even CTRL-ALT-DEL it.
I had the same thing on a P4S533 mobo (SiS 651 chipset). There is a 
solution in the freebsd-hardware I'll summarize here for ease :)

In the boot loader:

set hw.ata.ata_dma="0"
set hw.ata.atapi_dma="0"
In /boot/loader.conf
