Hi Peter, I tried this instruction and I was able to get into smartos installation. I choose all the default options there, it reported successful installation. Then I dropped 'ahci-cd' part, but I cannot get smartos boot. I can see on nmdm0B the following: Legacy INT19 Boot... And that's all. And there's nothing on nmdm1B. My command is: bhyve -c 2 -s 4,ahci-hd,/home/novel/smartos.img -s 5,virtio-net,tap0 -s 31,lpc -l com1,/dev/nmdm0A -l com2,/dev/nmdm1A -l bootrom,/home/novel/uefi/BHYVE_UEFI_CSM_20151002.fd -m 2G -H smartos ^T reports: load: 1.17 cmd: bhyve 4821 [running] 2461.38r 347.75u 2109.83s 100% 7580k And, by the way, is it possible to run FreeBSD using UEFI? I encountered problems with that as well: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-virtualization/2015-November/003904.html Any hints how to debug this are appreciated. Thanks, Roman Bogorodskiy
