However, after the update of efi roms in qemu, the original problem
of booting syslinux in OVMF still persists.  I received several
private messages asking whenever I succeeded in resolving the
original prob outlined at


and I always referred to this thread, until someone told me that
the update does not fix the issue.  Now I verified it locally,
and no, I still can't use syslinux with OVMF with qemu efi roms,
getting exactly the same output as I've seen on Nov-2014.
As you checked, grub loads, but apparently syslinux still doesn't.

Is it a different issue perhaps?
