Tried to install the amd64 iso in VMware 6.5.2 but it always fails at the same
place. Even tried the patched amd64 iso
(http://bugs.dragonflybsd.org/issue1521), same thing happens. The 32-bit iso is
working though.

Is this still the case with a recent snapshot?

Can you provide a backtrace (by typing 't' at the db> prompt) and paste it?

imho this is bounce buffer related and should be fixed by now.

Closing this. mpt(4) has since been updated numerous times and (afaict) doesn't crash in VMware (at least recent ones). If there are still issues, please reopen.
