Oh, I misunderstood. I assumed you'd got a terminal, or a computer
running a terminal emulator, attached to the serial port.

Yes, if you don't give it something on the serial port, you'll need a
keyboard to do anything more than unattended boot (and that much only
if there is a bootable OS available to it).
