It would be cool to have dreamsheel boot directly from the dongle.


You must "say" to the console to read the serial port, it's why the only way is to have a new bios.

I guess the community already tried, but so it isn't possible to force the startup from the serial port in some way?
The Bios during the startup, doesn't check the serial port at all?
