Does your system boot without the ISO file?
In order to boot Debian you have to move your bootloader:

This is not a Debian bug, but rather bhyve’s EFI support being incomplete. The easiest way around this is to copy the Debian binary into the standard location immediately after installation. In other words:

# cd /boot/efi/EFI
# mkdir BOOT
# cp debian/grubx64.efi BOOT/bootx64.efi

Indeed it has. I'll go with passing a new virtual disk with the CD contents on it, and keep the working ISO for future installations. Thanks.
