Sorry you had trouble. By default, the bootloader will wait 5 seconds for any keyboard input. So your race is not to type in a complete bootloader command but to type any character at all, such as the space bar. After which, you would have time to type whatever command you want.

If you want to change the race interval, you can use "set timeout <seconds>".

Also, you can have the bootloader ignore any boot.conf(5) provisioning by holding down either Control key during the boot process.
