also, doing it the way i suggested will still give you the option to re-select windows, and then from there right back to freebsd is you accidentally hit the wrong button. creates a nice loop.
eg: machine boots, windows shows you "Windows XP" or "FreeBSD"
you select FreeBSD, you get the menu you want from there
F1 FreeBSD
F2 Microsoft Windows
F5 DiskX
Selecting windows will take you back to the windows loader, and then you could select windows or freebsd.

Hi Mike,

I am not at all sure whate you are suggesting here?

What I am asking, is, somehting like:

Can I reboot the machine with the FreeBSD install disk, and using the sysinstall utility, reinstall the freebsd boot manger so I wind up with:

F1 Windows
F2 FreeBSD
F5 Disk1

why not just add loader or whatever to the windows boot loader.. unless you specifically need fbsd boot manager

Hi all,

For those that have been following this thread:

I now have Norton GoBack uninstalled and un-hooked from the MBR
-Had to go to Symantec and get a rescue disk,
-The rescue disk tried to un-hook GOBAck from the MBR,
   -It found the MBR borken (due to the FreeBSD Boot Manager install),
-So the rescue disk ran all night restoring the original C-Drive,

-As of this morning, I once again have a bottoable windows system,
-FreeBSD 6.4 is intalled, but,

-I have not boot manager so I cant get to the FReeBSD installation.

Can someone (please!) explain how to install the FreeBSD boot manager again?

THanks all,

-Grant

So then,

IF we are able to restore the Windows MBR, and boot into windows, should we not be able to boot the machine with a bootable FreeBSD disk, then,
use Sysinstall to restore the FreeBSD boot manager?

Yes, that is exactly what I was getting at.
