Hello all,

Can someone please confirm that having EPT support in the CPU is not 
necessarily enough to run Bhyve. I have an Intel Xeon L5520 (Nehalem family) 
that supports EPT but when trying to run an VM, receive

Windows VM UEFI

2 vCPUs requested but only 1 available

ROM boot failed: unrestricted guest capability not available

Linux MV Grub

VM unrestricted guest capability required
Error in initializing VM

My understanding is that the L5520 does not have support for "Unrestricted 
Guest/Real Address Mode"  which was introduce with the release of the Westmere 

I assume its a non starter without the unrestricted guest feature.

Running FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT r294227
