Crashed Public Phone

This is a fascinating one, seen at Frankfurt Airport: a public phone stuck on the BIOS boot screen:

I never would have imagined that such a device would contain a regular PC, but there you are, here turned for your viewing pleasure:

Not that a Celeron with 400MHz is anything to run Windows 7 on…

The question really is: what on earth did the device fill the “primary hard disk” with? Maybe MP3 recordings of conversations placed on it?

The hard disk encoded in the Primary Master ID is a Hitachi Endurastar with 20 GB and an ATA-100 interface, by the way.
