It isn't enabled by default in Hyper-V. It would be easy for me to add though in Vagrant if needed. Let me know.

The problem is that VirtualBox doesn't enable a serial port by default, and our boxes hang if they really need to use the console, e.g. during relabeling or during the initial configuration required for sealed VM templates (what I'm currently trying for Hyper-V support).

Otherwise, a patch for Image Factory is trivial - I can just the set the port to enabled in the XML file, without the cable connected, and probably move console=tty0 on the last position, so it becomes the active console.
