 First, please don't zip stuff up, it doesn't really save any space (the
 jpegs are already compressed) but makes it far less convenient for someone
 looking at the report (as one can't just take a look at the pictures in
 the preview).

 Then that isn't the log I'm looking for. Either enable the debug syslog,
 boot up to the KDL, reboot and then grab the previous syslog from the
 bootloader via the menu, or (easier) take pictures of the on-screen debug
 output while booting (up to the KDL). What you attached now is just the
 log of the bootloader starting up, which isn't revealing anything. Again:
 Enable on-screen debug output and take a picture of each page of output
 until you land in KDL. The font size of the on-screen debug output is far
 smaller, so it won't be as many pictures.

 I've heard of... but TAR?  Nope! :-D

 It's a filesystem based on the TAR format (tape archive, .tar, .tar.gz
 ...) and is used because the netboot archive for booting via PXE is a TAR
