Add Linux Boot Option With bcdedit
1. bcdedit /create /d "Linux" /application BOOTSECTOR
2. bcdedit will return an ID for this entry (for example something like -
{de50478b-bb21-11e1-837e-001d72ceba3a}) that we will call {Linux-ID} below.
3. bcdedit /set {Linux-ID} device partition=C:
bcdedit /set {Linux-ID} path \boot-loader.bin
bcdedit /displayorder {FreeBSD_ID} /addlast
* Note: Get the BOOTSECTOR file from Linux using something like
dd if=/dev/sda3 of=/mnt/share/linux.bin bs=512 count=1
