centos 6 run tool prompt box


I use a bash script to install a minimal desktop on centos 6 server - this is the command I use in the script:
Code:
yum -y groupinstall "Desktop" "Desktop Platform" "X Window System" "Fonts"
but when the computer restarts the bootup stops midway with a prompt on the screen. Here is a screenshot of the prompt:
http://198.91.92.112/centos6-start-screen.jpg
Problem is the machine is at a remote location where I can't press a keyboard to get rid of it.
I do have ssh access to it though so is there a command I can run to close this box and let the machine complete the boot process?
Or is there a way I can modify the bash script so the computer boots all the way up properly?

That's certainly looks like a 'curses' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curses...ing_library%29 interface, basically a 'fake' GUI that actually just uses char cells, not X-win etc.

Should work from the ssh cli.
Its often used during installs before eg 'Desktop' etc gets installed.

ok but how does one get rid of it from a remote location using ssh? I need the machine to proceed beyond this point and boot up completely.
