I am trying to access the boot up status data that is shown on the serial port when you restart the access point.  I am wondering if this data is captured somewhere and how to access it.  
I can see this data on the serial port, but I don't know how to make it available to my system, other than capturing it off of the serial port.  

After an AP restart, I see the U-Boot data.  
See below.

This is on an AP7532, and WING 5.8.3 firmware.

You can get some of it with this CLI command:

more flash:/log/startup.log

Hi Mark,

what you see monitoring boot sequence via Console connection is more or less boot-loader (U-Boot) output which is out of user accessible memory.

Once WiNG loads you are limited to basic user partitions /flash, /system and /nvram
Use below command to take a deeper look
dir /recursive all-filesystems
WiNG does not allow user to go deeper and see core and boot loader related files.
