It's better and easier to take a photo, cell phone JPG is fine. Also include the results from lspci -nnvv (using the working kernel).

With the F18 kernel successfully booted, use lspci -nnvv to find the kernel being loaded for serial support and then blacklist it on kernel command line when attempting to boot the F19 kernel that's giving you problems.
