wildhem,

For Dell Wyse T10 / T50, everything should work, except the display.

Thanks for reminding, I forgot to add this box and HP T5335z to the the Installation list in the release thread..

Are you sure your box has a BIOS? this box uses U-Boot as loot loader. If it has a BIOS then it is a different Thin Client (Intel x86 base).

Yes, assuming you have the T10 / T50, connect serial console and it should be possible to install Debian on USB.

Thank you for your work and instructions on how to do it.
However, I have a problem with the installation.
I connected the adapter on the ch340g chip and the only thing I get from the console are the following characters:
root@acab-VirtualBox:/media/acab/rootfs/boot# picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0
picocom v3.1

port is        : /dev/ttyUSB0
flowcontrol    : none
baudrate is    : 115200
parity is      : none
databits are   : 8
stopbits are   : 1
escape is      : C-a
local echo is  : no
noinit is      : no
noreset is     : no
hangup is      : no
nolock is      : no
send_cmd is    : sz -vv
receive_cmd is : rz -vv -E
imap is        : 
omap is        : 
emap is        : crcrlf,delbs,
logfile is     : none
initstring     : none
exit_after is  : not set
exit is        : no

Type [C-a] [C-h] to see available commands
Terminal ready

123ABCcd
12345


Attempts to send commands in your hp t5335z manual do not bring any results despite the rootfs flash drive.

It looks like your serial connection did not work. Check the GND wire. And try hitting the Enter/Return key several times to see if you get any output.
