Default Re: BUG 302.17 - can not access TTY console

I disable my framebuffer as explained at this page:

In the file "/etc/default/grub/grub", I add "nofb" to this line:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nofb"

do a update-grub and I reboot the computer

At the reboot I still have framebuffer, to verify I'm using fbset:

$ fbset

mode "1680x1050-77"
    # D: 176.429 MHz, H: 82.908 kHz, V: 77.196 Hz
    geometry 1680 1050 1680 1050 32
    timings 5668 208 32 16 4 208 4
    rgba 8/16,8/8,8/0,8/24
I looked in my bios, there is no framebuffer option.
And in dmesg I have always the error message about vesafb.

And I still can not access to my TTY console.

another idea? Put "vga=" in the grub command line could disable framebuffer? I will get a try.
