Hi,
Start in windows xp and use bootpart from:
http://www.winimage.com/bootpart.htm

List your partition of your disks with this tool and have look where freebsd is 
installed.
(It is a nice freeware tool and you don't risk any damage to the partition table!) You 
can than create with Bootpart a 512 byte file that contains an image of your freebsd 
boot sector. Bootpart will copie it to c:\ (for example). It can even add the correct 
text string and references to your newly created (for example) freebsd.bin file in 
boot.ini.

good luck
