I've been following an installation guide for FreeBSD and this part seems to be skipped. When I reboot my system after the initial installation it loads to grub boot loader, but in command mode as no options have been setup yet. I have windows10 installed on another drive.

How do I load FreeBSD from this command mode?

    yeah, it says: 'GNU GRUB version 2.02' 'Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported...' and then 'grub>' – koko Feb 23 at 17:54

Run ls to list the partitions and replace hd0,X with your root partition:

set root=(hd0,X)
kfreebsd /boot/kernel/kernel
