Access virtual terminal console during installation

Post by eugene » December 13th, 2018, 6:28 am

I've successfully booted ipfire via iPXE but the installer cannot download the ISO. No error is provided.

To debug the installation, I would like to access the virtual terminal like in this post. Does anyone know how to do this?

It the post it is the recue interface of grub (before the kernel was bootet).
This is not present on iPXE
but if the Installer fail at download install image,
linux is already bootet and you can normal switch between consoles by ALT+F1 ... ALT+F2 and so on.

The installer should output his debug on console2 and also start a shell on console2 and console3 to work with the system.
