  It's failing in the user-space loader - a kernel can't be found on the 
lts.iso that is being passed to it. This results in register state not 
being set up correctly in the VM, so it will exit immediately (note the 
RIP value of 0, and the exit code of 33, "VM-entry failure due to 
invalid guest state").

  What does lts.iso look like ?
