Hi Thomas,

If you Alt-F2/F3 into a spare console, I imagine you can do:

  chroot /target /bin/bash

and then run the grub-install command manually.

You should then Alt-F1 back into the installer menu and say 'Continue
without a bootloader' as there are some other things it does before it

BTW, were you installing the Squeeze release (kfreebsd-8)?   Or one of
the Wheezy testing images (kfreebsd-9) from:
