Serial connection (bare metal)

Question

Hi, I'm trying to connect to my bare metal XPenology box (Intel C236 board) via the serial port.  I'm hooking it up to my PC's COM1.  I am using a null modem cable, which is correct, right?  I am connecting with PuTTY using the recommended settings.  But when I reboot I only get garbage showing up in the console:

▒▒▒

Using Jun's loader, version 1.03b.  Everything comes up fine, I'm just wondering why the serial output isn't working.  Has anyone managed to get it running in a similar setup?

You don't even need a login for a serial connection.  Assuming you are using the right correction parameters, the output should just dump to your screen.

1 important question ... Are you trying to install DSM 6.2.x ?

If so, make sure your NIC are compatible before waisting your time ;-)

Did you ever find out what this initial password is? I used to know it a while back and now I've forgotten!

No Sorry, 

I didn't need it... 

I found the failure with the graphics Adapter.. 

After i removed that, it was able to find IT through find.Synology.Com...
