Hi, can anybody direct me to instructions on how to remove the F1-DOS,
F2-FreeBSD Boot Manager from FreeBSD? I installed 2.6.5 on a disk
containing MS-DOS (drive C:), from which I cleaved off 200 MB for
FreeBSD (used fips and then mucked around with NT's Disk
Administrator), and Windows NT 4.0 (drive D:), which used to take care
of the boot process.
I remember selecting "NONE" in FreeBSD Installation when prompted for
the destination of the boot manager, but then I must have done
something wrong. The OS itself installed perfectly fine, though.
So now I get the FreeBSD F1-DOS, F2-FreeBSD prompt. If I choose DOS, I
get the familiar NT boot manager.
Now I would like to get back to NT boot manager appearing first thing
(my employer does not look kindly on such "customizations", and I'm
not the only one using this PC). I can live with booting FreeBSD off a
floppy disk, but I would prefer doing it through NT's boot manager.
I tried adding FreeBSD to boot.ini by using BOOTPART, but got nowhere
past the WinImage copyright message.
Oh, yes, I also tried BOOTPART WINNT BOOT:C: to repair the Windows NT
boot sector, also without success. I still get the FreeBSD boot
NOTE: BOOTPART is an utility by Gilles Vollant, which can be found at
Any clues? Thanks
