The taps are allocated an IP address.

I fully concur.

In the install at one point, I declare that the IP address, netmask and gateway
are 'declared' at the 'MB ' BIOS interface.

That is correct .

I do have an iso of the MB drivers,

namely a Supermicro  X10DRW-i MB 


from Intel I did obtain the .exe file for the i350GbE drivers.
I script a 2 phase installation as follows:


/usr/sbin/bhyve -c 2 -m 4G -w -H -s 
-s 4,ahci-hd,windows2016.img -s 5,virtio-net,tap15 -s 
29,fbuf,tcp=,w=800,h=600,wait -s 30,xhci,tablet -s 31,lpc -l 
com1,stdio -l bootrom,/usr/local/share/uefi-firmware/BHYVE_UEFI.fd 


/usr/sbin/bhyve -c 2 -m 4G -w -H -s 3,ahci-cd,./.iso/null-install.iso -s 
4,ahci-hd,windows2016.img -s 5,virtio-net,tap15 -s 
29,fbuf,tcp=,w=1024,h=768,wait -s 30,xhci,tablet -s 31,lpc -l 
com1,/dev/nmdm15A -l bootrom,/usr/local/share/uefi-firmware/BHYVE_UEFI.fd 
windows2016guest &

As I said, I have picked up an ISO from the MB manufacturer

let's call it manufacturer.iso .

Where do I place said iso in the 'phase' of things?
