Once you have applied power to the baseboard, look for console output. The next section of the manual provides information on getting the console connected. The first output is from the bootrom:

Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.

The "Booting From" message will indicate your boot media. The 2 dots after indicate steps of the booting procedure. The first dot means the MBR was copied into memory and executed. The next dot indicates that the MBR executed and the kernel/initramfs were copied into memory and executed.
