FreeBSD requires part of the boot to not be encrypted, this can be done 
using a USB thumb drive if you absolutely must have the full hard disk 

The USB drive or unencrypted part the hard drive needs to have a copy of 
/boot portion of the installation this doesn't contain any user data so 
its fairly safe if someone sees it.
