Once upon a time, I was installing FreeBSD on my laptop.  I had already installed it on my desktop before, so I already knew how to dual boot it with Windows.  The install was fairly uneventful.  After the install, and telling FreeBSD not to touch the MBR, I was prepared for its next trick.  It would set itself as the only boot partition.  After a healthy dose of messing with the flags with Gparted, I was ready to boot into Windows to hack away at the Windows boot loader.  But, alas, when I tried to boot into Windows, I was greeted by the dreaded "BOOTMGR is missing" error.  Being the always-prepared guy I am, I whipped out my Windows install CD and entered repair mode.  After a startup repair, I let the computer reboot, but the error was still at large, so I tried a startup repair again, and it worked.  I was able to boot into Windows to hack the boot loader to allow booting into FreeBSD.

The End

 

Hope you enjoyed the story!
