qemu uefi boot

I am trying to play with qemu uefi booting...
I found the OVMF package and installed it.

I added the "-bios /usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_CODE.secboot.fd" to my command line.
when running it says cannot load "/usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_CODE.secboot.fd"

The file is there. I'm trying this on CentOS 7.6

How do I correctly boot UEFI with qemu ?

Thanks

Jerry

UEFI boot in qemu continues to be a tech preview[1] so it doesn't
really work that well. I was able to get C7 to boot with UEFI if a
downgraded the OVMF package to one from 7.3, but that seems pretty
dangerous, so I keep my VMs as BIOS boots for now.
