Description

When I run a Bhyve Windows 10 VM from the GUI the installation of Microsoft SQL Server fails (error "Wait on the Database Engine recovery handle failed").

After some research I found this: https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-virtualization/2016-October/004896.html
Which pointed me to the sectorsize argument for a disk.

I tested this by running a VM in Freenas from the command line adding a sectorsize argument to the disk.
Example: -s 6,ahci-hd,/dev/zvol/volume_1/vm_disk2_data,sectorsize=512
As a result Microsoft SQL Server installs successfully.

Could you add this argument to the GUI for a VM disk?
