Windows iso can not boot in UEFI?

  iso, qemu, uefi, vmware-workstation, windows

I meet a thorny problem that I have to install a windows preview version virtual machine in qemu. I download Windows10_InsiderPreview_Client_x64_en-us_21354.iso and try to install it. However, I find the iso can only boot with BIOS firmware in Vmware Workstation, I have to switch the booting firmware from UEFI to BIOS that to make it setup. Every tutorial guides me to use BIOS but I have to use qemu OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd UEFI to start my system.
When I load the cdrom, qemu says "Press any key to boot from CD" and waits but unable to enter the system. The strange thing is i try another iso and it works! Where is the problem in iso or in qemu or in OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd? why I use another .iso to use UEFI install system will successful.Can I convert this .iso to an UEFI bootable .iso? Any suggenstions?
