This is possible by adding an <os> <loader> element to the libvirt
The documentation is wrong. At least in the latest libvirt, the qemu
driver supports this to set the -bios parameter.
I don't know if this is possible directly in virt-manager, but another
way is to create the VM in virt-manager and then (after shutting down
the VM), edit it using:
virsh edit NameOfGuest
and add the <loader> element as outlined in the link above.
