Silver USB cable on the left if ethernet-over-usb (which works fine), on the right is a USB key from which the root filesystem, kernel and modules were installed (not needed for subsequent operation but used for debugging by copying log files to the key etc.).
Still too large at over 80Mb installed for a full GUI but that is still
