The BeagleBoard X15 has jumper settings to boot:

SD if present, otherwise eMMC
SATA if present otherwise SD

I know the CPU for eMMC boot will boot u-boot from partition 1 with a
given filename from either FAT or EXT2 filesystem, with either MBR or
GPT partition table.  It will also boot from eMMC boot area.  I am
not sure which one the X15 happens to be supporting when they say boot
from eMMC.

Seems the jumpers are not installed howefver, and it would take soldering
work to make it do anything other than the first option.
