I installed directly CentOS-7.1 (CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-1503-01.iso).
I tried the newest version with CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-1611.iso and
it really failed to load saying "not a correct XFS inode". I rechecked
and CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-1503-01.iso works fine.

vm-bhyve is just shell scripts for bhyve, it does not add any
functionality. However it make life more comfortable. ;-)

As for uefi, I tried it for graphics UI (ex. Windows) and it really
works fine.
