    I believe the handbook covers dual booting. Please consider reading it a
    few times - as I mentioned before, the Handbook will answer most of your
    questions.

    In addition, search this list for "other" methods of doing dual boots
    with Windows. It's been covered many times.

    The manual says sysinstall menu... boot manager... done I already did
    that and it works fine but i want to learn how to do it in fixit mode
    with fdisk -B b /dev/ad1 /mnt/boot/boot0

    Windows is booting fine when i did that but freebsd doesnt boot what
    did i forget to do ?
