I was able to successfully run through the steps and start running the
virtual machine. However, once I start the guest, the host freebsd
I have installed the freebsd host in x86_64 machine. This is the hw spec.
sysctl -a | egrep -i 'hw.machine|hw.model|hw.ncpu'
hw.model: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7500 @ 2.93GHz
1. Is it that Bhyve is not fully running in 64 bit amd or x86 processor? Or
The e7500 model has VT-x, but not EPT so the vmm.ko kernel module
should fail when being loaded. Hmmm, not sure the script would handle this.
So, unfortunately your h/w doesn't quite have what BHyVe requires :(
2. Is it that Byhve runs on 64 bit x86 but not 64 bit amd?
That is currently true, but your CPU is Intel - FreeBSD's generic term
for 64-bit Intel architecture is "amd64" so that's not the problem.
