Back when I was working, when I was a senior engineer, I used to do a lot of interviewing. Coming up with reasonable questions is a pain, and one I used was "What is the most useless error message you've ever seen?"
My own answer was "Syntax error", a common error message from early compilers. Someone did better though: it was an error message from the first PC BIOS: "Keyboard not found. Press F1 to continue."
But I do believe that your picture, if genuine, has topped them all.

But that machine had 4K each of ROM and RAM, so they had an excuse. Not so much these days.

It does come in handy to still have wired keyboards and mice around. When I was rebuilding Himawari (Avoid Seagate drives) many things, even my BIOS could read my wireless USB Keyboard. Except the screen at the beginning of CHKDSK. Unless I wanted to sit through ANOTHER 8 hours while it failed, I have to have a keyboard I could plug in to kit a key to abort. (Likewise, an early version of the Seagate utility on a bootable CD couldn't read the wireless mouse.)
