Installer cannot write any files to disk, can partition however

On Asus A8V-VM motherboard, PC-BSD 1.4rc1 install CD will boot to X, run installer and let initial setup steps commence. It will partition the blank 15gb IDE HD, however, during the entire install progress bar each file name is followed by: "cannot write (whatever) no space on disk".
After a few thousand of these, the installer halts with "An error occurred while extracting system image! System will reboot" etc. After reboot, the partition table was written but HD is otherwise blank.
The installer needs better error handling, it kept plodding through this same critical error from 0% to 100%. Also, if PC-BSD installer can write a partition table that is visible after reboot, why can't the installer manage to write a single file from CD to HD??
The CD drive and HD look to be PIO mode 4 from kernel messages, so something in this chipset may not be 100% supported.
