Does anyone know how to do a one-time boot to text-mode on Ubuntu Zesty? I've tried kernel arguments 'text' and 'gfxpayload=text'

    Just FYI, we are not working with Ubuntu 17.04 yet, in fact we are working to incorporate Ubuntu 16.04.

    Try just appending "3" (that seems to work on almost all systemd systems)
