when looking at the device tree, it might have enough to run mainline
linux and access the hard disks. There is no USB or ethernet support
though (unless ethernet was connected via pcie).

If you are able to access a root shell on the vendor OS the interesting
bits are:

 - the output of

   	uname -a

 - the (pseudo) file /sys/firmware/fdt

 - is the serial console accessible? If so, do you have matching
   hardware to connect it to another machine?
