"In continuation of a series of articles on dual-booting Linux and BSD desktop distributions with Windows 7, this article presents a step by step guide on how to dual-boot the latest stable release of PC-BSD, PC-BSD 8.2, on a computer with an existing installation of Windows 7.

"This is a 3-stage process. In stage one, unused space is reclaimed from the Windows 7 installation. Stage two involves the installation of PC-BSD on the reclaimed space. And finally, in stage 3, an entry for PC-BSD is added to the Windows boot menu.

"When completed successfully, the Windows boot menu will be just like the one shown below, with entries to boot into Windows 7 or PC-BSD 8.2."
