|Platform||KVM/serial port install||OS||8||OS Version||latest|
|Summary||0018192: Cannot install via text or serial console because boot image enters non-text mode immediately|
|Description||serial (no display/keyboard) and text (kvm, iLo, and other remote connectors) installers require access to the kernel boot line to work (e.g. so we can specify inst.text or console= or whatever).|
This has become impossible now, because someone decided to stop using text for the text-only install prompt (the "text" is now being rendered as graphics inside a graphic display, instead of plain text on a text console).
|Steps To Reproduce||Boot installation .iso|
Observe that the display is not in genuine text mode (easy way to spot this: fonts look different to the BIOS that was using plain text mode).
|Additional Information||Please revert to using plain text for the initial installation dialogue.|
It will still look more-or-less identical to what it now looks like in "graphics" mode, but it will work for everyone that needs it then.
