Make sure the Shift key is held down when booting the Workpad. This
will skip the setup questions on the z50. I always make sure I hold it
down just as the fifth or sixth period (".") is printed at the initial
boot screen, and keep it held down until the CE desktop comes up
fully, then I clear the CompactFlash warning I get with Esc, then
launch the boot utility.
