I must be missing something here, so why would it not be possible to perform a regular installation from the install media as you would do with any other computer without having to use a serial console?

I mean it's a full fledged laptop with screen and keyboard. The last time I played around with a serial console was when using my good old Intel SS4200 which has no graphics and thus no monitor connector.

Sorry I misunderstood. 
AFAIK OpenBSD 6.7 does not turn on the display yet for PBP so we need to use a serial device, com0, to see what's going on during installation or during boot after installation. In other words, you can install to eMMC and log in but the display is blank because fb0 doesn't work.

Anyone knows how to enable display?
