Might FAQ 7.6 be helpful? FAQ 4.16 may be of use as well.
That's nothing a couple o' pints wouldn't fix.

The very best thing you can do is study Section 4 of the FAQ. This section also mentions a number of manpages. Read them. While reading Section 4 & the manpages, ask yourself the question, "Can I perform this action over a serial connection?" If the answer is "yes", read the documentation very carefully. If the answer is "no", move on.

Doing basic research before asking others to spoon feed you helps build knowledge & self-confidence. It will also help others gain respect for your questions.
How I can install OpenBSD from Serial port ...
I will even give you a hint. Read Section 4.5.4 of the FAQ very carefully. During installation, users are asked the following question:
Location of sets? (cd disk ftp http or 'done')
Which of these actions can be performed over a serial connection?

Otherwise as marcolino suggests, some platforms can be run headless (without keyboard, mouse, & monitor). Study the boot.conf(8) manpage for more information.
