I haven't tried it, but perhaps with qemu-img? From https://wiki.freebsd.org/bhyve: <https://wiki.freebsd.org/bhyve:>
Q: Can I use disk images from VirtualBox or other virtualization platforms on bhyve?
A: bhyve does not currently support reading foreign disk image formats directly, so one will have to convert
existing disk images to a raw image using qemu-img. This can be accomplished by doing the following
on a FreeBSD system:
$ pkg install qemu-devel
$ qemu-img convert -f vmdk -O raw virtual_box_image.vmdk bhyve_raw_image.img
VMDK, QCOW, QCOW2, VDI and more images can be converted to raw images using the qemu-img(1)
utility in the emulators/qemu-devel port.
