How did you get your hands on some of that mythical ARMv8 hardware?

Hi,

the system boots fine ... I was just too dump. The system boots over VGA just up to EFI, all promts after EFI are displayed over serial. 

console="comconsole"
comconsole_speed="115200"

did the trick.

Sorry

I just ordered it ;) It's pretty less.

Although it works this is not a particularly convenient user experience; we should see if we can have better default settings. I'll likely start a discussion on the arm mailing list.
