What do you mean? I think he asked about slave (primary I suppose). I
ask this because ...

... "windows" can normally boot from slave position without bootloader,
(in some cases with help of 'boot.ini' and ntldr/ntdetect.com, but
AFAIK only if booting is impossible even when ad1 (D) is selected in
BIOS as the first boot choice).

Ok, it's maybe simpler to add FreeBSD's boot sector, but that's not

So, Rico should first check if "windows" can boot directly from D. If
not, that's another problem.
