[SOLVED] Choose boot systemd target per boot?

Hi.

I use my laptop for my university work, but I also like to run some servers sometimes. For school, I need to use a desktop environment (KDE, Plasma 6, SDDM), but for server use I far prefer the multi-user tty.

I would like to choose between these two options before I boot, or during it, and have it default to one of the two after some time passes with no input (much like my GRUB instance already does when selecting entries).

Maybe I could create separate boot entries in GRUB, maybe hold down a key combination during boot; I really don't care when and how this is done during the boot process, as long as I get to choose every time I boot into my system and one of the options is chosen by default.

What is the best way to achieve this?
