Hi, I'm relatively new to FreeBSD and have just tried to install the 32bit version on my machine. There was already a Windows XP installation on it. The installation procedure went fine and I selected to install the FreeBSD boot manager to the MBR. When I rebooted I got a single line flashing cursor and no boot manager after the bios check. I decided to reinstall the original Windows MBR so at least I could start checking what went wrong on the forums. Problem is, I still have just the flashing cursor. I can boot up to the Windows CD and use the repair faciltiy. I have tried fixmbr and fixboot but still just the flashing cursor. I have now tried to get a quick Ubuntu installation on to use Grub. Still, the flashing cursor. This machine was running perfectly until I installed FreeBSD. Now it appears I have no way of booting anything on this machine. A Linux system repair CD confirms the drive is okay, as did chkdsk under Windows. Does anybody have any idea what has gone wrong? This is the first time a distro seems to have broken a hard drive for me.
