I can't find the source code for your converter, perhaps you can repost it ?

IMO, it's better to use our own tool, if it's not very complicated. I
learn this lesson when writing efi support for x86_64. The gnu-efi
toolchain can produce efi image, but it turns out to have some
limitation on relocation, and it's hard to fix. I end up modifying
grub-mkimage to support converting elf to pe32+. Relying on external
tool means we are at the mercy of them, it's annoying when they have
issue, as we can't expect upstream to fix it soon.
