I booted the ubuntu iso and got into rescue mode and I could see that my
console args did make it into grub.cfg. The problem was that upstart did
not have a serial console started so I had to configure one. So then I
got console output remotely through ssh but for some reason not on the
physical console which stopped output at "GRUB Loading". But now I have
what looks to be a grub2 issue when the guest boots, it just says
"error: invalid magic number" then "Failed to boot default entries."
