Dell PowerApp Web 100, no HD
When booting the machine using the 5.1-BETA mini install ISO sysinstall
complains that the / file system is full and then panics with "going nowhere
without my init" while in the initial "probing hardware" stage. As the machine
has no HD I didn't expect success but I seem to recall a no HDs detected
message last time I had a machine with no drives rather than a panic.
Boot machine with no drives (I haven't actually tried any other machines so
it may be something unique in this Dell.
