To boot in the text mode is fairly easy. 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.
