That doesn't make a lot of sense, since the FreeBSD BTX loaders and such are exactly the same since the late 8.0-Alphas -> 8.0-Release. (All regular FreeBSD 8.0-Release). Can you confirm this still fails on PC-BSD 8.0?

CD Loader 1.2
Looking up /BOOT.... Found
Relocating.... and the BTX
Starting the BTX Loader
BTX loader 1.00 BTX version is 1.02
Consoles: internal video/keyboard
BIOS CD is cd0
Bios Drive A: is disk0
Bios Drive C: is disk1
Bios Drive D: is disk2

That's all. After displaying that slash character (not even rotating it :) ) the PC is dead. Ctrl+Alt+Del or Reset btn are the only options. This strange behavior is speciffic only to PC-BSD 8.0 RC2. All other previous versions (8.0 alpha, 8.0 RC) worked just fine, displayng smth about memory allocated and continued with the FreeBSD loader and all the stuff
