There's nothing magical about freebsd on a drive. It's just like Linux, Windows, MacOS, etc. and it comes off in the same manner. There were a lot of good suggestions here, but rather than giving you a new toy to play with in fixin the issue, can I ask which program/utility you are trying to use to remove it? When you say you cant load it as a slave, do you mean it's not showing up in the bios/post, it's showing up in the bios/post but not the OS you are using to format it (I'm assuming windows, is that correct - in this case, are you looking for it under "My Computer" or are you looking for it under [rightclick "My Computer"]->Manage->[Drive Management, or whatever it is called, not currently on a windows box to follow the path right now]?
