I believe that if you configure BIOS for Console redirection, it will automatically switch to text mode.

Here's a question, which is related. Does the graphical BIOS work over
the iDRAC's virtual serial port? The Lifecycle Controller (which I
believe is implemented as an EFI pseudo-BIOS) doesn't, which is a
shame as ssh to the iDRAC is faster and more convenient than spinning
up an IPKVM via the iDRAC web interface.
