Description

The loader values 'console="vidconsole"'or 'console="vidconsole,comconsole"'are invalid for systems booted UEFI where that does not exist. Instead console should be 'efi'.

That means if you enable a serial console on an efi booted system where VGA is primary you lose access to the boot loader menu.
