nomodeset does not fix the booting issue via the xen 4 hypervisor. Also it breaks the booting on bare-metal as well.

In which way do you prose I boot my system without X....

My default runlevel is 2 according to /etc/inittab

# The default runlevel.

But I get gdm and gnome DE by default.

Thanks for your help :)
