Start in windows xp and use bootpart from:
List your partition of your disks with this tool and have look where freebsd is installed.
(It is a nice freeware tool and you don't risk any damage to the partition table!) You can than create with Bootpart a 512 byte file that contains an image of your freebsd boot sector. Bootpart will copie it to c:\ (for example). It can even add the correct text string and references to your newly created (for example) freebsd.bin file in boot.ini.
