Thanks to everybody for their suggestions and especially to Frank for
the easy spell that worked. Now it boots to a console but if I want X
all I need to do is "sudo service gdm start".

> In /etc/default/grub there is a section:
> # Uncomment to disable graphical terminal (grub-pc only)
> #GRUB_TERMINAL=console

This had no effect
> If that doesn't work then I'd set (also in /etc/default/grub)

This worked. Thank you!

Cheerful regards,
