One bit of info that needs clearing up here, did you start a text 
install by yourself or did the system fallback to text mode ? If the 
installer drops down to using only Text mode, there will be a reason 
mentioned in the anaconda log file - look there.

If the installer makes an assumption that it cant run the GUI mode in a 
reasonable fashion, then it does the safest thing, and sets the machine 
to boot into text mode post-install.
