How can automatically boot FreeBSD in boot0 and, when needed, manually load win by pressing a shortcut button?

Did you try boot0cfg from FreeBSD to configure default slice? Also set non-update mode so the last selection isn't recorded. – Netch Jul 15 '12 at 9:27

I somehow solve this by boot0cfg -t 18 device that automatically boot in 18 ticks (about 1 second).
