I've run into issues in the past, when attempting to install FreeBSD on
a disk that grub had been put on from another OS. I found that blowing
away the MBR, a couple of times, solved it.
More specifically; Writing a generic MSDOS type MBR on the disk. I've
forgotten the incantation. But it can be done from the live FreeBSD
install media, or the GPARTD CD, if you have one.
