A follow up to this:

I have tried a pure qemu installed from packages:

qemu-system-x86_64 \
        -bios /usr/local/share/ovmf/ovmf.bin \
        -no-shutdown \
        -nodefaults -no-user-config \
        -name Windows2016Pure -vnc,to=99 \
        -display none -device VGA,vgamem_mb=16 \
        -boot order=c \
        -usb -usbdevice tablet -smp 2,maxcpus=2 \
        -device rtl8139,id=nic0,netdev=net0,mac=00:16:3e:5d:0d:48 \
        -netdev type=tap,id=net0,ifname=tap0,script=no,downscript=no \
        -machine pc -m 4080 \

and the boot process goes easily past the OVMF and continues booting,
only to fail "Inaccessible boot device" Windows message much later (probably 
I was using XenPV drivers there).
