I confirm that you don't need to create this device ! It's works great with the two line who Sadique gave me ..

But now, i could use this trick only when vm is installed ... if i need to install a full vm and i don't have access to X server, how can i handle that ?

thanks !

    You shouldn't need to create this in an HVM domU.  The console you're
    interested in for HVM should just appear as a standard serial port.

If I were you and I need this badly, I should hack the isolinux.cfg in boot.iso for that distro to throw boot messages by default to serial console and boot the OS from the modified boot.iso.
