I know how to do that.

It's OK, but any problems and you are back to needing the monitor.

It would be soooooooooo nice if all PCs had serial BIOS, and I can't
help but think it could be done without adding much, if any, cost.

Many PCs already have more on-board flash space than they are using.

Mine has a 256K BIOS, and 2MB of flash ROM.
