Not necessarily.

I guess there are two possibilities:

 - use the nvram utility to remove the 15M parameter before starting
 - put some shim in the initrd or kernel.

Given that the LS Pro software doesn't need the 15M parameter (since
it's an initrd), the first choice might be best.

Is the nvram utility included is the LS Pro software environment or is
that only on the Kurobox Pro?

I thought even the new firmware didn't work with the 15M parameter.
