Hi there,

try using standard (also minimal) way, and that's

1. unplug your keyboard/monitor (if any)
2. -P in /boot.config
3. std.9600 in your /etc/ttys

That worked for me dozens of times. It also gives you flexibility in
case you decide to use keyboard/monitor at some point in future.


Hope that helps
