The ISO image should also work. We use this method regularly and rarely
have any issues. Maybe something went wrong with dumping the ISO image
to the USB device? When using 'dd', one has to make sure that all blocks
are actually written to disk before unplugging the USB device because
the Linux kernel may keep blocks in the block cache, even after 'dd'
exits. It is usually the best to specify 'oflag=direct' to the 'dd' command.

You may use a PC-card with a comport, which should work out of the box
thanks to the "bender" chain-boot loader that we use by default.
Alternatively, Intel AMT's SOL (serial-over-line) is quite handy. The
latter is supported by Genode's run tool. You may find Section 5.4.
"System integration and automated testing" of the documentation 
helpful for using this approach, in particular the example given at page
