Actually it works but only from one point and after.

In the solution I proposed there is a slight issue. If the system freezes while it's booting then all the boot messages are not logged. Any ideas for that?

Yes. bootlogd is designed to buffer all messages until the log location becomes writeable but it doesn't.

For a freezing system, two possibilities. The easiest is a camera. Alternatively it may be possible to use the serial port for the console and connect a buffering device. We used to do that on an IBM mainframe
