Electronic billboard in Bochum: No boot device

Saw an electronic billboard in Bochum, that was not able to boot its operating system (click to view larger version):

No boot device on eletronic billboard

There are two possible explanations for this:

  1. There is a local boot disk like a hard or a flash drive that failed.
  2. The billboard boots using PXE. The billboard could not load its boot image from the central server, possibly because the internet or VPN connection failed.
