I'm no expert but are you on a monitor or console. If the latter it is
possible that you need to set the Supermicro setup to redirect the first
serial port. Alternatively I believe you can reconfigure the netboot
configuration for serial configuration.
Recent Supermicros have a handy HTML5 console view available via the BMC
which should allow you to connect to both a redirected virtual screen or
serial console (where the latter is typically serial 2, I believe).
