FreeBSD brings its own boot manager that can be installed.
As far as I know, it should be installed after the "Windows"
installation, because it would be overwritten otherwise.

If you're planning to also use Linux, I think GRUB may
be a good solution.

As I am not using multi-boot environments, I can't be
more precise. But go ahead and try the presented suggestions.
