Created new partitions and slices (MBR-Mode).
bsdinstall has overwritten Win7 boot code, es it seems---no questions any more (like in sysinstall) wether we want it to do this or not!?
(Win7 still there (mountable in freeBSD), but not bootable.
Neither ``Startup repair'' nor bootrec in the ``command Prompt'' of Win7's DVD could repair it---althoug dir works on it in the mentioned win-cmd-prompt.)
I am sure, that I am not the only one who would appreciate it very much, if we had the chance to choose wether to write down a bootloader into the disk or not (as we had with sysinstall)
Created new partitions and slices (MBR-Mode) in new installer called bsdinstall.
