Yes, I download your ovmf file in linux-build-test/rootfs/firmware/ from
your link. There are two files, efi32 and efi64. Then I try to run:

BIOS=/usr/share/edk2/ovmf/OVMF-pure-efi-32.fd
qemu-system-x86_64 \
-bios $BIOS \
-cdrom /var/lib/libvirt/images/iso/Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-29-1.2.iso \
-hda /var/lib/libvirt/images/fedora-efi32.qcow2 \
-enable-kvm \
-m 5G \
-serial stdio

It can't boot, but if I changed as:
BIOS=/usr/share/edk2/ovmf/OVMF-pure-efi-64.fd

Then the machine booted. So I am not sure how to use this
OVMF-pure-efi-32.fd. If there is somethins wrong in my understand,
please let me know.

Thanks,
Chao Fan
