Thanks but I wasn't lacking for files.
I was lacking the magic--magic apparently missing even from the
Windows recovery disk--to make even Windows bootable. This magic *is*
present on the FreeBSD install disk, as I discovered when I gave up,
wiped the disk, and freshly installed FreeBSD on the whole thing.
I'll install Windows as a virtualbox guest as soon as I get back on
site and download it from Amazon. (Yes, $119 down the toilet.)
By the way, for the folks who've been working so hard on the UEFI
implementation of FreeBSD: It's beautiful. It installed and booted
perfectly (and yes, under the circumstances, I was worried).
What *would* be nice is some dual-boot documentation. I'm sure that
what I was trying to do is possible. I just didn't succeed. And having
to muck with the firmware every time to get into FreeBSD is ugly.
