My is simpler than booting the "monster"

I had to replace my workstation. It was supposed to come with windows 7 that I 
was going to toss. As it came with 10 I shrunk the windows partition and 
installed 10.3. Getting:

=>        63  3907029105    ada0  MBR  (1.8T)

The FBSD install overwrote the MBR to boot the BSD partition. Can I [easily] get 
a duel boot out of this. Or, is there a better way to install FBSD as not to 
wipe out what's there?
