You can have sysvinit and systemd installed in parallel and then use the 'init' kernel parameter to switch between them. Only systemd-sysv conflicts/replaces sysvinit. I don't know whether current gdm will work correctly under sysvinit but you can at least test that you can boot that system and log in on a text console.
