Fail to install FreeBSD via PXE UEFI firmware

I have DHCP/TFTP/NFS working service to serve files from network. This service works to boot Debian installer from PXE.

I am trying on latest FreeBSD 13.0 current snapshot. I extract bootonly iso files and keep in my TFTP and NFS folder.

In DHCP service, I setup root-path to NFS mount point of the extracted bootonly iso files.

The DHCP serve the boot/loader.efi via TFTP service.

I then try to boot a Hyper-V machine in network, it can get IPv4 address and load boot/loader.efi.

However, the machine stop afte "Setting currdev to net0:" No further error message was prompted.

I attach the screenshot in attach files.

I also try on FreeBSD 11.3, 12.0 and 12.1 and all having same problem.

I start wondering if FreeBSD can install via PXE?
