Looks to be an ordinary 32-bit far branch after having switched to
protected mode. I'm afraid without seeing the involved GDT entry
there's little chance of guessing what may go wrong in this case.
One question is why the emulator is being invoked in the first place:
Since you've truncated the log at the beginning, it's impossible to
tell whether you're using old Intel hardware lacking the Unrestricted
Guest feature.
