Yes, you should definitely try out the debian kernel. It is possible that 
you can get a working serial console from systemd without installing the 
kernel package (which would generate an initrd with the modules). It is 
also possible that the modules are installed already (check /boot and 
/lib/modules for matching kernel binary and kernel modules).

If you use the network card in MacOS and then boot Linux from Penguin, you 
can get a crash like this (unhandled interrupt). The best workaround is to 
boot MacOS with extensions disabled (restart and hold down shift key when 
you hear the chime).

Another possible cause of the hang is a known Penguin bug triggered by 
some large gzip'd kernel binaries. The workaround for this is to unzip it 
before asking Penguin to load it.
