Change i440FX to Q35?

We recently got a TS-877XU-RP. It is running the Build of QTS, Virtualization Station is the most recent one.
As far as i can gather, the "foundation" for all of this is QEMU/KVM. We have a few Proxmox Servers, so i'm not that unfamilliar with QEMU/KVM.
However, Virtualization Station is...odd.

I've managed to get TianoCore/UEFI working, via some trickery with VirtualBox. However, i've set ICH9/Q35 in VirtualBox as Chipset. This is ignored and switched back to i440FX. Is there a reason why VS does not support Q35?
I would like to use SecureBoot as well, but there is no GUI way to change the settings. Where are the config files for the machines at?

As dolbyman said, best to ask Qnap.

My quess is it is due to the age of QEMU that they are using:

Code: Select all

Compiled against library: libvirt 1.2.19
Using library: libvirt 1.2.19
Using API: QEMU 1.2.19
Running hypervisor: QEMU 2.3.1
