Unfortunately, the legacy keyboard emulation option in the BIOS that I
mentioned is the only thing there that looks promising, and it doesn't
seem to matter to FreeBSD.

What's most annoying is the fact that I can use the keyboard just fine
in the boot loader, it's when the kernel actually loads that the
system starts ignoring the keyboard.

Is there a way to enable the serial console from the bootloader (the OK prompt)?
