In the installation section, after I entered the virt-install command with proper arguments(shown below) to build the virtual hardware configuration, and connected to the vm console with vnc, I got a no-respond screen staying on the welcome of installment menu with the vcpu occupied 100%, so I cannot even take the next step on installation.
Whatever I adjusted the virt-install arguments, specified them or using default by omitting, it just didn't work and repeated the malfunction. But the KVM enviroment has no problem when I install any other vm using linux distribution like centos or opensuse.
So I want to know what's wrong with my freebsd vm configuration, or is it a hardware problem, e.g. referring to the specific CPU quality? And I want to get help on how to fix it.

all commands run as root.
some of arguments I tried:
virt-install \ --name freebsd9 --virt-type kvm \ # still didn't work when omitted. --ram 4096 \ # no effect even I adjust the ram size bigger or smaller. --vcpus=1 \ # if I use two vcpus, one is 100% occupied, and the other is free. --cpu host \ # still didn't work when omitted or modified to sandybridge or whatever kind in xml file using command "virsh edit freebsd9". --disk path=.../freebsd9.img,size=10,type=qcow2 \ --cdrom $install_cdrom_path \ # using installation iso file, freebsd 8 or 9, neither is ok. --network bridge=br0,model=e1000,mac="52:54:00:..." \ --vnc \ --os-type=unix \ --os-variant=freebsd8 \
