Before I answer, a few rules:

  1) Don't top post
  2) Don't use HTML email. Use plain text.

Now to your issue. The error "Not a bootable ELF image" is completely correct. 
The bootloader is not ELF. After that message the quik bootloader starts which 
loads Linux which boots up and eventually shows you the login prompt.

If you want to see all the steps in between you have to connect to the primary 
output device. In your case this is the VGA adapter that seems to have broken 
upstream. You can change it to be the serial console (stdio) instead in which 
case you will see all that output on your console. To do that, pass -nographic 
to the QEMU command line.
