1&1 Internet Server Serial Console (EMS) Settings

If you’ve got a server from 1&1 Internet (Germany same as UK) and the serial console is not working (maybe because you upgraded to a newer/different Windows edition or edited the boot configuration) here are the correct settings to get it working again:

Windows Server 2008 (BCDEDIT Command):

bcdedit /emssettings emsport:1 emsbaudrate:57600
bcdedit /ems on
bcdedit /emsboot on

Windows 2003 (Edit BOOT.INI):

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
redirect=COM1
redirectbaudrate=57600
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS=”Windows Server 2003 Standard x64 Edition” /fastdetect /redirect /NoExecute=OptOut
