You can build ipxe efi roms and use those, then netboot will show up in
the efi boot menu (although I didn't got that actually work).  Of couse
seabios will stop offering netboot then because it can't use an efi rom.

If you wanna play with that:

(1) copy to /etc/yum.repos.d
(2) yum install edk2.git-ovmf-x64 (pulls ipxe too).
(3) qemu -L /usr/share/edk2.git/ovmf-x64 (you can add
    -bios /path/to/your/own/OVMF.fd if you want)
