`Troubleshooting data processing`_ section. If not, ensure that the ramdisk
actually booted as described in the `Troubleshooting PXE boot`_ section.

console access to the machine, you can check the logs as they appear on the
screen. Otherwise, you can rebuild the IPA image with your SSH key to be able
to log into it. Use the `dynamic-login`_ or `devuser`_ element for a DIB-based
build or put an authorized_keys file in ``/usr/share/oem/`` for a CoreOS-based
