That's going to be *very* tight with any recent FreeBSD release.
You will need at least *one* bootable device besides the hard drive in
order to get the install going.
You will need to do an absolute minimum installation, and *maybe* add
a few things afterwards.
You may find that picobsd is the best approach, though...
