“The UEFI applications before the last layer correctly use the OVMF GOP 
(graphics output protocol), which drives the emulated Cirrus 5446 video card. 
Unfortunately, the last layer (WinPE) has a hard dependency on VGA BIOS 
interrupt 0x10, which is not provided by any OVMF CSM (compatibility support 
module) as of now.”

This (in the “Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1” section) is another reason why 
people need a SeaBIOS for EFI ;-)
