This one is in the FAQ:

"I get garbage on the screen when I boot or I can't seem to pause at the
initial boot menu."

DragonFly, when booting, outputs to both video and serial ports. If the
booting computer has a 'noisy' serial device connected, it may read data
from it during the boot process. Serial console activation during boot can
be disabled by creating the file /boot.config with the contents: '-V'
