Now it seems that the e1xx-003-make.tar.bz2 dated 11-May-2012 15:34  667M expanded on a microSD card will not boot (see attached putty.log).  I'm running out of things to try, any suggestions?

The boot log says it cannot find the init program on the root file system.

Can you put card in the reader you made it with and find where the files
systems are mounted on the PC. Look at the contents of the card,
particularly the sbin directory and see if the seem "sane".
