  | I can't seem to make this motherboard's BIOS disable ACPI.

The intent was to disable it in NetBSD via the boot prompt - but that
is only possible if your boot.cfg (on the netbsd-7 root) was set up to
give the menu and wait a few seconds for you to interrupt.

If you don't have a menu entry for booting with ACPI disabled, you should
still be able to boot manually from the boot prompt, just give
netbsd the "-2" option.
