I have installed FreeBSD 10.3 into a partition but am unable to figure out how 
to get rEFInd boot the partition. The gpart list shows the following (I have 
filled in info from Windows dispart also):

    ada0     GPT (932G)
             -free-         1.0M
    ada0p1   EFI            1.0M   K
    ada0p2   ms-reserved    16M
    ada0p3   ms-basic-data  446G   C   Windows
    ada0p8   EFI            1.0G
    ada0p9   freebsd-swap   4.0G
    ada0p10  freebsd-ufs    438G
             -free-         241M
    ada0p4   ms-basic-data  25G    D   LENOVO
    ada0p5   !de94bba...    1.0G       WINRE_DRV
    ada0p6   !de94bba...    15G        LENOVO_PART
    ada0p7   !bfbfafe7...   1.0G
             -free-         712K

I do not know what to do from here. gpart set -a actvie ada0 breaks all except 
from booting from the CD. geom=ada0 is the only accepted target for set.

Killing windows is not a deal breaker for me (I tried to get the laptop w/o an 
O/S). I can not tell if doing a full disk install will revert all to a legacy 
BIOS setup.
