symptom: I was missing the bringup messages from Linux init.
cause: I didn't have the console= part on the kernel line like you do.

Yes. I've tried serial console using grub on UL.

I configured grub as :

# /boot/grub/menu1.list

#gfxmenu (hd0,0)/message  # do not show the graphic interface

default 0
timeout 8

#Using COM2
serial --unit=1 --speed=9600 --word=8 --parity=no --stop=1 
terminal  serial console 

title linux
	# Using COM2
	kernel (hd0,0) /vmlinuz  root=/dev/sda2  console=ttyS1,9600n8
	initrd (hd0,0) /initrd

I am wondering what kind of error message you've got?
