Without kernel modules preloaded in /boot/loader.conf
And sysctl variable preloaded in /etc/sysctl.conf bhyve will not boot the installer. It stops at "missing /boot/entropy.
Could you elaborate a bit? Which kernel modules are you referring to?
Sorry I'm new. I just read the guidelines for reporting a problem.
Anyway, the kernel module vmm has to be prepared in the /boot/loader.conf and the sysctl variable net.link.tap.up_on_open=1 has to be preloaded in /etc/sysctl.conf for bhyve to boot to the installer after main welcome prompt.

What exactly is the bug? Indeed, vmm needs to be loaded on the system before you can use bhyve at all. It can be loaded using loader.conf or with kldload. If you use a bhyve wrapper script like vmrun, this will be done automatically.
net.link.tap.up_on_open=1 needs to be set if you are using a tap interface on the host to pass packets through to the virtual network interface in the guest. That is documented: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/virtualization-host-bhyve.html
