Hello

I have recently had to reinstall Centos 7.5 to on host computer. I have 
not be able to set-up qemu to support the q35 chip set.  I have several 
virtual machines that require q35. This is not my first install, I have 
configured libvirt on many machines in the past, it just worked, it has 
not required any manual configuration.

I have installed the  Virtualization Host group. Configured the nvram in 
the /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf, I even used the same copy from a previous 
installation.

nvram = [
    "/usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_CODE.secboot.fd:/usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_VARS.fd",
    
"/usr/share/edk2.git/ovmf-x64/OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd:/usr/share/edk2.git/ovmf-x64/OVMF_VARS-pure-efi.fd"
]


Thank you
Aaron
