Looks like syslinux booted it just fine and it's having a problem once 

I see your point since it is complaining about the second file it wants to load afterwards. 
Syslinux loaded the bcdwboot.bin fine but maybe in a different way than before?
Did something change in the memory layout or somewhere else. The script to create the image never changed in years and if I go back to any version before 3.52 it works again.
