Newer versions of FreeBSD use a GPT bootloader and parts can remain. I do not fully understand it but GPT bootloaders use the first 2 sectors while the older MBR bootloaders just used the initial sector. Apparently, left over sector 2 can corrupt the older MBR bootload process.

I have had good success using gdisk on gparted and following these instructions.
