I've installed FreeBSD on a friend's box with a pre-existing Windows XP installation. This isn't the first time I've done this, my personal desktop machine is dual boot Win2K/FreeBSD, and there are no problems.

On to the problem...the machine starts up normally and the FreeBSD boot manager presents my boot options (F1 - ??, F2 - FreeBSD). When I press F2 to select FreeBSD, the machine just beeps at me. Pressing F1 boots XP with no problems. The only thing that I can think of is that the boot sector of the FreeBSD slice isn't where it's supposed to be, but beyond that I'm stumped. Anyone have a suggestion as to what may be causing this and how I might remedy it?

TIA, Mike
