I'm starting BHyVe virtual machine with UEFI firmware from ports using chyves and I have a problem with a boot loader misconfiguration on this particular VM.

I don't want to boot to OS in order to fix the problem with the boot loader. Instead I want to interrupt the boot process and use UEFI Shell (TianoCore?) to do all the necessary tasks before the boot loader or operating system.

The problem is that I don't know the way to invoke UEFI shell on startup in case of successful boot process and I was unable to find the information about it. Is there any way to invoke the UEFI shell in BHyVe?
