Default boot.log contains only a fraction of the messages

After a boot, my boot.log is less than 4k in size, and contains only a
small percentage of the boot messages.

Is there any way to increase this so that I can review all messages
that appeared on the console?

Thanks,

Gerard

Kind of...

/etc/default/bootlogd

BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes

I think the other messages fall into "/var/log/messages"

Not quite. This only effects messages generated after the kernel has
booted. Earlier messages, generated by the BIOS and early boot stages
are not captured - unless you have a terminal on the console port that
can capture them.

Messages that appear in console when system boots (as per OP request) are
splitted into "/var/log/messages" and "/var/log/boot" (whether enabled).

BIOS screen (and/or remaining devices initilization) messages are a
different thing.
