As soon as the message appears to press 'i', keep pressing repeatedly.
The boot will go on to check, and mount the file systems and just after
the message "Enabling /etc/fstab swaps:   [OK]" one is asked whether
to go into interactive mode or not. It all happens in the same screen.
Don't stop pressing the "i" until you're asked the question to enter 'Y".

The current approach is not practical, there should be a custom timeout to
give time to press 'i".
