If there's no guarantee there's a serial port in all Vagrant providers, 
we should probably not default to activating a serial console - 
especially since the guests are usually headless and they can hang 
indefinitely during boot because of this.  The images I sent you today 
don't use the serial console any more.

The Vagrant images v1704 are already released (the build I did this 
weekend), they are available on cloud.centos.org along with the 
gpg-signed checksums.  Hopefully Atlas will also be updated soon.  If we 
find a solution for Hyper-V, we can probably add it as another provider 
in this release.  It's actually just CentOS Linux 6 holding us back, I 
hope the latest images fix the NIC renaming problem.
