New systems come partially installed, Mick, the final steps of installation
are completed when the new user powers it up for the first time. Takes 15-20
minutes on average.
I'm guessing that this particular user did not read the instructions and
tried running it from a partially charged battery while these final steps
took place. When the partially charged battery ran out of juice, the
installation fell over as incomplete and is now corrupted. Since it's new,
there is likely to be little on it of value, so the OP should check the
manual for instructions on doing a system recovery and get a fresh install
to work with (and this time leave it plugged in).
