I'm trying to install Ubuntu on an appliance that does not have ports for a display (i.e. VGA, HDMI, DVI). I have made a bootable USB stick using the Ubuntu ISO using Unetbootin and edited three files (syslinux.cfg, text.cfg, isolinux.cfg) using the description found here: https://github.com/ynkjm/ubuntu-serial-install

After all the initial text while booting it bring me to a menu, this menu however is unreadable.

Is there anyone who knows what's wrong and how it can be solved?

I solved this by using minicom. See, http://pbxbook.com/other/mac-tty.html#minicom

I had the same issue installing ubuntu on my pandaboard ES. I was not able to get the mac terminal nor screen to talk to the ncurses installer.

I'd love a solution that does not require me to install more software on my mac. But for now minicom works.
