You are wrong here. During the install you are offered three options: BootMgr Install the FreeBSD Boot Manager Standard Install a standard MBR (no boot manager) None Leave the Master Boot Record untouched You want to choose the first one to install the FreeBSD Boot Manager The standard boot record will only boot FreeBSD and nothing else. The terminology is a little confusing here, but you want the FreeBSD boot _manager_ not just the standard boot _record_ - two different sector positions on the disk. The boot _manager_ choosed which boot _record_ to start booting with. ////jerry > > > > What I want is to have the nt boot loader give the choice to boot into > > > bsd by using the boot1 -> bootsect.bsd method in boot.ini. > > Read the following FAQ carefully.
