The point was that it's very strange for nothing to be coming out on
the serial port.  The only reasons I see for that are a BIOS image
that is corrupted (did it verify?) or doesn't match the board, or a
serial port misconfiguration.  I was trying to help you narrow that
down.  Unfortunately it can be difficult to debug someone else's BIOS
when the only console is email :)
