How to create a UEFI Fedora guest using gnome-boxes

When create a new box, using the defaults, Boxes will download and install Fedora using BIOS.

How can I have a UEFI Fedora under Boxes?

@sampsonf I found this article: Enable UEFI Support For KVM Virtual Machines In Linux - OSTechNix

The tldr; is add the following package:

sudo dnf install edk2-ovmf

The article then shows how to configure it either from the command line or virt-manager from there.

With virt-manager, yes, I managed to do that.

I want to do the same with gnome-boxes.
