Disabling Graphical Boot on Ubuntu Server 1804

An a server it has no advantage the GRUB and the Linux kernel is booting up in graphical mode, as it is only hiding the potential error messages.

The following is a simple receit to switch it off.

Edit the file /etc/default/grub:

Replace the line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash quiet"

to

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset"

And uncomment the line

GRUB_TERMINAL=console

After this run

sudo update-grub 

On the next reboot, you will see the boot messages on the screen :-)
