UEFI terminal (command line) boot mode
Is there a way to invoke terminal (command line) boot with UEFI? Need to reinstall vmw-tools from the command line (GUI is not showing at the moment as the vwm-tools are absent). Booting into the (VMW) firmware interface does not provide a command line boot option.
Solus is VMW guest with the disk encrypted.
Ctrl+Alt+F1-F6 does not produce a tty. Various boot command-line manipulations, such as:
resume= (always removed)
quiet splash text
systemctl disable lightdm
systemctl set-default multi-user.target
proved futile and none/neither succeeded to boot into a plain tty. always the gui starts at some point during the boot process and then the screen goes blank/black.
