what product number is your E5? According to the manual you need the following for Intel CPUs to run bhyve:
" The easiest way to tell if a processor supports bhyveis to run |dmesg|or look in |/var/run/dmesg.boot|for...|EPT|and |UG|on the |VT-x|line for Intel® processors." (I snipped the reference to POPCNT which seems to be an AMD only requirement."
its possible that your E5 is old enough that it lacks the VT-x support that bhyve needs.
