Boot from a FreeBSD USB stick or a CD-ROM that contains a live-CD image.
(e.g. FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso or
FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img)

Once you get to the main menu of the installer, choose the =E2=80=9CLive CD=
=E2=80=9D option.
Mount the partition where /boot resides. Then you can edit the file.
