I've found that the big distros (CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu) work very
well with bhyve's UEFI support. It has been years since I used either
bhyveload or grub-bhyve.

CentOS does need a little massaging, renaming GRUBx64.efi to
BOOTx64.efi or something like that. I can never remember off-hand. But
other than renaming a file, Linux works great. :)
