This is very unlikely.... so far I haven't seen a single machine where the video was not compatible... More likely some "other" problems prevent the machine from booting . The easiest way to find out what's wrong in case of a black screen is tracing over serial-port (TraceMode=4, TracePort=1, TraceBPS=115200), or, if no serial ports or 2nd computer is available, tracing over screen (TraceMode=1, Init=).
Try to add the following configuration strings:

The association of the USB storage device to its (disk) device name is made by the USB mass storage driver (UsbStorage.Install ~). If the USB mass storage driver succeeded in handling the disk device, it should show up in the output of Partitions.Show ~.

So your machine boots the A2 "LiveCD"? Compare the configuration strings from the LiveCD and the installation. This is the main difference between these two.

The Partitions.Eject command should also work in case you have not mounted any volume on the disk device (actually, it would be a bad idea to eject when some volumes would be mounted).

The week-end, inet-access-PC here, doesn't display CD-based A2, after the initial DOS-based <loading Oberon> mesg. I'm guessing the video is incompatible.
The during-week-PC 20 Km away, IIRC showed [under Inspect -> USB] the USBmouse & the fake USB CDROM, as "Port1: Port2:".
I don't know how to 'associate' "Port1: Port2:" with a <dev> ?!
Also under linux I don't know the corrersponding /dev/* for "USB device 00:07.2-2, assigned address 5"
eg. when I log the following test results:---
-> move USB connector ==
Code: 8b 40 24 8b 40 04 85 c0 74 14 ff 40 10 8b 06 8b 40 10 8b 40

WARNING: USB Mass Storage data integrity not assured USB Mass Storage device found at 5
CD-A2 won't mount any IDE, and
after I install CD-A2 to a partition, my diskette-booter
from years of N-O usage, shows blank-screen, when I try
to boot the assumed installed A2, and blank-screen for the
previously tested ETHN-O partition too.
Apparently the video setting is incompatible with the 'installation' but not with the CD version.
I move my main IDE between the 2 PCs.
Also very strange is that, the PC that runs ETHlinuxOberon with a PS2 mouse, needs a USB mouse for A2.
Of course you'd have to `mount <dev>` before you could <eject dev>, but CD-A2 won't mount ANYTHING ?!
