On the old netboot Stretch media I just booted:

1-when the boot menu appears on the screen, hit <ESC>
2-"boot: " appears on the screen, hit <Tab>
3-several options appear on the screen, last of which is "help"
4-type help and hit <Enter>

a function key menu appears containing several choices about boot parameters
