 Does anyone have an experience on booting CentOS 4 as a bhyve guest?
 I want to convert one of my very old servers which requires CentOS4
 because of commercial software to a virtual machine, but I got the
 following error when I tried to boot CentOS-4.8-x86_64-bin1of5.iso:

 reason          VMX
 rip             0x0000000000100080
 inst_length     7
 status          0
 exit_reason     2
 qualification   0x0000000000000000
 inst_type               0
 inst_error              0
Abort trap

I am using the following command line and grub2-bhyve-0.24.  It is one
that is working well for CentOS6 on 10-STABLE:

# bhyve -AI -H -P \
        -s 0:0,hostbridge \
        -s 1:0,lpc \
        -s 2:0,virtio-net,tap2 \
        -s 3:0,virtio-blk,./system.img \
        -s 4:0,ahci-cd,./CentOS-4.8-x86_64-bin1of5.iso \
        -l com1,stdio \
        -c 1 \
        -m 1G \
