I am trying to run Centos7 under bhyve. Centos6 works great. Centos7 =
gets problematic because of XFS.

Since grub2-bhyve does not understand XFS, and for some bizarre reason =
Centos has no ability to change partitioning or file system types in the =
textual installer, I took more drastic measures. One of which was to =
boot the Centos7 installer via Virtual Box and set up a VMDK with ext4, =
then pull that VMDK and convert it ro raw with qemu-img. At least I was =
able to get a kernel loaded and booting, but then it failed to mount the =
root file system no matter what options I specified.

Has anyone else gotten further?=
