+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1327846 +++
Description of problem:
Currently, oVirt only supports booting virtual machines via BIOS. However, UEFI is the newer, more modern way to initialize a system. Additionally, now that the licensing for the UEFI firmware is fully Free, a firmware package can be included to make this work.
Please add support for booting via UEFI in oVirt 4.0.0.

we will build UEFI (and secure boot) on top of q35 chipset, tracked in bug 1301111.
This would likely be TestOnly once it's implemented. Will keep open and revisit this bug once we get closer

Is there some progress. I see it as a blocker for my usecase.

Not much progress yet. There are more details in devel card https://trello.com/c/jIJRQw3z
Was trying to write a hook to enable ovmf in order to test booting from a pci-e sas card via vfio (without firmare), hitting BZ1527740.
So this RFE is probably blocked by that BZ as well.
