I fail to see what you mean by that, as FreeBSD's BootEasy works
automatically. You did installed when prompted by sysinstall, didn't you
? Or you use another boot manager

I have a strong feeling that the seagate tool is your problem. Note that
FreeBSD is accessing the drive directly (by querying the drive itself to
get its parameters) after the first boot phase, and so it is by-passing
any kind of software that "lies" about the hard disk geometry.

The "Fixit" or "Live-CD" - the second ISO is a live file system CD which
is what you want.
