I tested it with f12 live-cd.

You will get a boot display like:
  ... going to start in 7 seconds ...
quickly hit any key, and you will get a menu display like
  Memory test
hit Tab key to display kernel line
add to the end of kernel line
 xdriver=vesa nomodeset
and hit Enter.

This will boot and set up your desktop.

Open a terminal and input 'su'.

verify that kernel actually took your vesa parameters
# cat /var/log/dmesg |grep -i vesa
Kernel command line: ... xdriver=vesa nomodeset ...

verify that vesa driver is utilized  by Xorg
# cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log |grep -i vesa
Kernel command line: ... xdriver=vesa nomodeset ...
... Driver "vesa" 
(II) Load Module: "vesa"

You are set.
