    Adding the nomodeset parameter instructs the kernel to not load video drivers and use BIOS modes instead until X is loaded. Once X is loaded your proprietary Intel graphic drivers should kick in.

    So you are only missing out on a higher resolution bootup splash screen and your drivers should be working fine once booted up.
