I've seen this happening when the BIOS also tries to talk to the
serial port at the same time. Try changing the BIOS to stop doing
console redirection once it starts booting, or replace boot0sio with
boot0, and change boot(8) and loader(8) to only use the serial or BIOS
console, but not both.
Since I don't dual-boot anymore, I've replaced boot0 with a standard
MBR, and start off with boot(8) on all machines.
