--- Comment #6 from Mike Karels <karels@freebsd.org> ---
I just retested this using a 14.0 installer on a system with an existing Linux
(Ubuntu server) installation.  I used the manual partitioning mode, creating
ufs and swap partitions.  The efi partition was not reformatted.  The installer
asked about deleting duplicate FreeBSD entries, due to a previous installation
that I had overwritten with Linux.  I deleted the duplicates, and am now able
to boot from either FreeBSD or Linux.

I think this problem has been fixed in the meantime.  I intend to close this
bug in a few weeks unless there is an objection.
