Hello In my quest to continue expanding guest support in my vm-bhyve utility (See https://github.com/churchers/vm-bhyve :) ), I've found the Windows support pretty solid once I got clear on the slot requirements. I'm now trying an OS that requires CSM (Illumos) but unfortunately I'm currently struggling to get it to boot up correctly.
Here's an example of the command I'm generating at the moment (This is running on an Intel Core-i3): bhyve -c 2 -m 2G -s 0,hostbridge -s 31,lpc \ -s 3,ahci-cd,/data/vm/.iso/smartos-latest.iso \ -s 4:0,ahci-hd,/data/vm/smartos/disk0.img \ -s 5:0,virtio-net,tap0 \ -l com1,stdio -l com2,/dev/nmdm2A \ -H -l bootrom,/data/vm/.config/BHYVE_UEFI_CSM.fd \ smartos I have com1 set to stdio so I can easily watch the output as it runs. It tends to get as far as "Legacy INT19 Boot...", then fall over. Depending on whether I put the network interface directly in the slot after the HDD, I seem to get different errors - slot 3 - cd slot 4 - hdd slot 5 - virtio-net panic[cpu0]/thread=ffffff01457cdb40: BAD TRAP: type=e (#pf Page fault) rp=ffffff0004a69a60 addr=40 occurred in module "genunix" due to a NULL pointer dereference slot 3 - cd slot 4 - hdd slot 7 - virtio-net panic[cpu1]/thread=ffffff0004002c40: BAD TRAP: type=d (#gp General protection) rp=ffffff0004002740 addr=0 On com2 I see the boot menu, then one and a half lines of dots. The second line of dots stops about 2/3 of the way across. Interestingly, my code normally puts the CD after the HDD, which Windows seems happy with as long as the slots are consecutive. In SmartOS this gives me a different error: slot 3 - hdd slot 4 - cd slot 5 - virtio-net PlatformBdsBootFail Boot Failed. Harddisk 1 !!!!
