Hmm, it seems you have an i386 system. I tink bhyve is only supported on amd64.

Is this a new machine with a modern 64bit cpu? If so then you need to install the 64bit version of FreeBSD.

Also I have down loaded mt image from

Is there some other place to look for the ISO?

       I am really interested in the bhyve project. For starters I loaded
FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT version. I went ahead and did a kldload vmm.ko hoping
to load the kernel module, but vmm.ko was not found. I am also unsure
the bhyve project source code should be present(having downloaded the
source code). Should it be under /usr/src/sys? Do I have to checkout the
code from the repository?

   I am new to FreeBSD, forgive my ignorance.

Bhyve was only recently integrated into FreeBSD 10.  What date is your
system built?  You can tell via the output of "uname -a".

If it's more than a month or two old, you may need to download more recent
sources and "make world".
