If you get the hit any key message with the countdown, press a key to get the boot menu. (Skip if you always get the boot menu.) At the boot menu, press e (edit). Scroll down to the line that lists the kernel, and press e again. Scroll to the end of the line, and add a space and 3. Then press b (boot) and the system should boot in the text mode.
