How about "Ctrl-x to boot, Ctrl-c for command line, or ESC to abandon
changes and return to the menu"?

We don't need to use the "C-" notation at all if it needs explanation.
"Ctrl-x" should be clear to most users (everyone knows "Ctrl-Alt-Del").
"abandon" sounds better than "throw away" in this context.
