So that kinda sucks. :)
How do you ever install an OS on this box?
In the case of my ancient C1XD (more or less the same as the C1XS), I
managed by

-> from Linux, setting up network block device server, and
-> used a Linux host running QEmu with harddisk set to the (then
connected) network block device.
Or just plug its disk into another box and install from there.
