The text installation mode is only available on Unix platforms. It will be automatically used if no graphical mode is available (for example, when running the installer on a server without an X-Window installation). You can also force a text-based installation in those platforms using the

--mode text

option from the command line: sample-installer.bin --mode text If you use this option in Windows, the installation will be performed in unattended mode.
