Note that 

>mkdir /boot/efi/boot 
>cp /boot/efi/proxmox/grubx64.efi /boot/efi/boot/bootx64.efi

could be fix this:
http://forum.proxmox.com/threads/23923-Proxmox-4-Won-t-Boot-Automatically


Maybe some uefi motherboard implementation are not fully completed,
and only try to find efi/boot/bootx64.efi

This is to be the case, 
simply 

mkdir /boot/efi/boot 
cp /boot/efi/proxmox/grubx64.efi /boot/efi/boot/bootx64.efi 

make it bootable. 

(It's bypass grub in this case I think) 



So, I can confirm that ovmf is working fine. 
I'm not expert with uefi implementation, maybe ovmf don't implement all , and only bootx64.efi. 

So I think you can add the patch to proxmox git.

seem that archlinux use systemd-boot 

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd-boot 

vs grub for proxmox iso. 


Also, maybe ovmf try to found 

\EFI\Boot\bootx64.efi 

which is available on archlinux install 


but on proxmox install it's: 

/efi/proxmox/grubx64.efi

don't boot with proxmox 4.0 iso install. 

Don't known what is the difference with archlinux, 
but it seem to be a proxmox uefi install problem. 

I'll try to see the difference between both.

Note: The qemu patch is still not applied, because I wait for feedback.
