To get rid of the FreeBSD boot manager: # fdisk -B -b /boot/mbr ad0 # fdisk -B -b /boot/mbr ad1 However, if you swap master and slave drives on your system, you need to edit the /etc/fstab file first, or FreeBSD won't be able to find it's filesystems and so won't boot. It is possible to fix /etc/fstab after swapping the drives by various means, but it's usually quite an involved process.
