Not very likely.

The OP might want to try using the Windows boot loader (ntldr) instead 
of FreeBSD's, as it is configured by a text file (c:\boot.ini) which can 
be edited from both FreeBSD and Windows. There are several online 
tutorials on how to use it to boot Linux, use boot1 file for the FreeBSD 
boot sector.

I have no idea how to enable the Windows boot loader after both Windows 
and FreeBSD are installed on the machine and FreeBSD's loader is installed.
