bhyve is very picky about the configuration you start it with. I have had tons of troubles until I figured out a configuration that works for me.
This is how I start my VM and it works 100%:
Code:
bhyve -c 16 -m 24G -w -H \
        -s 0,hostbridge \
         \
        -s 3,ahci-hd,/dev/zvol/zroot/iohyve/myVM/disk0 \
        -s 5,virtio-net,tap0 \
         \
        -s 30,xhci,tablet \
        -s 31,lpc -l com1,stdio \
        -l bootrom,/iohyve/Firmware/BHYVE_UEFI.fd/BHYVE_UEFI.fd \
        myVM

And this is how I do it with a VNC connection:
Code:
bhyve -c 16 -m 24G -w -H \                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 :(
        -s 0,hostbridge \
         \
        -s 3,ahci-hd,/dev/zvol/zroot/iohyve/myVM/disk0 \
        -s 5,virtio-net,tap0 \
        -s 29,fbuf,tcp=127.0.0.1:6900,w=800,h=600,wait \
        -s 30,xhci,tablet \
        -s 31,lpc -l com1,stdio \
        -l bootrom,/iohyve/Firmware/BHYVE_UEFI.fd/BHYVE_UEFI.fd \
        myVM

Try install FreeBSD 11.3 Release

use vm-bhyve

Code:
loader="uefi"
cpu=4
memory=4G
network0_type="virtio-net"
network0_device="tap0"
disk0_type="ahci-hd"
disk0_name="fbsd.hdd"
graphics="yes"
graphics_listen="192.168.170.100"
graphics_port="5901"
graphics_res="1280x720"
graphics_wait="yes"
utctime="no"
uuid="fe3ba0ed-asa4-99e9-v6a5-e4b97a2e1519"
network0_mac="22:1e:cv:77:9c:df"
Start install from ISO FreeBSD 11.3. Release
# vm install FBSD-VM /vmbhyve/FreeBSD-11.3-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso

After timer boot I see black screen and no usually dialog screen for install FreeBSD...
But on HOST start top utility, I see - VM work, i can stop VM and start VM again.

What I do, for setup.

Temporarily changing,
Code:
~~~
loader="bhyveload"
~~~
Start install from ISO FreeBSD 11.3. Release
# vm install FBSD-VM /vmbhyve/FreeBSD-11.3-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso

Connect to VM
# vm console FBSD-VM
Connected

Open text mode, not good view, but ok )))))

When install, use ZFS and select boot mode - UEFI
I install FreeBSD 11.3 Release in the text mode, all fine.
Finish install and VM poweroff.

Change on UEFI
Code:
~~~
loader="uefi"
~~~
and start VM, FreeBSD 11.3 boot fine.

My question.
Why I can't load install process FreeBSD 11.3 Release use UEFI mode, when load installation from iso ?
What change in bhyve ?

FreeBSD 11.2 doesn't have this problem and start setup in UEFI mode fine, this only 11.3 and 12 versions.
