Unfortunately my motherboard don't have integrated com ports and I need to control all via serial connection.

When I tried to manually type a "serial --speed=115200 --unit=0 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1" in the grub command line it complains that COM1 port don't exist. I have played with unit and port attributes but without any luck.

Could someone help me what I'm doing wrong? Is it problem with configuration or I have unsupported equipment?

Thank you very much in advance.

With best regards
