I have a headless appliance that has a lone serial console. I have an external HD with Linux installed. I can boot linux on my appliance using the USB HD (I know this because I can log into the router and see that there is an IP for the appliance and the OS name is displayed). The console (through Putty) displays everything up until the following lines, then there is nothing:
Loading /live/vmlinuz... ok Loading /live/initrd.img...ok
Does anyone have any ideas? On bios, the proper baud rate is set to 115200 and I have that set correctly. Can anyone help me out here? It's a headless system, so it's a little tricky.
