When you're booting the computer, interrupt GRUB startup and on selected (latest) kernel entry press


This will edit the GRUB configuration temporarily. Append


to the line starting with


Then press


To boot accordingly to that config. To have that set up permanently, you'll need to update your grub configuration and regenerate it.
