I posted this on the other thread:

The vultr install does indeed disable virtio-random, but that wasn't the only
issue: I created my own ISO without virtio-random , and whilst it stopped the
boot hang, it still caused problems (hanging on reboot being one)

I talked with the vultr guy and he confirmed - he had to disable virtio-random
AND change the KVM profile to boot :

> We've found that v12 and older of FreeBSD do not actually support q35 - so when any version of FreeBSD is selected from our control panel we default that back to i440fx. We do have a few customers using the iso-over-image trick, and we didn't want to break them if they're just selecting the default version (13) and then trying to install 12 over it.

> We have not done extensive testing of FreeBSD on q35 yet - it seems like support for this is very new, so I wouldn't be surprised if there were still issues causing it to hang at reboot.
