boot loaders and USB devices

My PC does not have the BIOS option to boot from USB.
I use an USB cabled external hard drive for taking backups. It has
FreeBSD installed on it which I want to boot from so the motherboard
cabled hard drive file systems are un-mounted during the dump. This USB
drive will only be attached to do backups.
I also have a USB stick containing a Freebsd install used to clone
itself to the motherboard cabled hard drive.
Since the BIOS will only boot from the motherboard cabled hard drive can
I install a boot loader to gain boot access to my seldom connected USB
I reviewed the grub port but with no joy.
What do you recommend?
