I have the same issue with a fresh install of FreeBSD with or without ZFS.
Install only works in legacy mode. All other Linux and Windows based installs
work fine in UEFI mode. 

In a nutshell, there is something in the boot process that FreeBSD does that is
not supported by all UEFI BIOS'es. Or FreeBSD expects something from the BIOS
that no other distro does.

All Dell UEFI xx10 and xx20 Optiplex systems seem to be affected. Probably more
models as well. Don't expect Dell to fix it just for FreeBSD when every other
OS works fine. FreeBSD needs to fix this compatibility issue.
