you may want to remove or rewrite "During the partitioning process, do not delete or format the first MSDOS (FAT) partition, as the Raspberry pi firmware" ---> this is the Beaglebone webpage, not the RPI.

According to the boot sequence is : "By default, the ROM in the Sitara AM3359 will boot from the MMC1 interface first (the onboard eMMC), followed by MMC0 (MicroSD), UART0 and USB0..."

Kind regards, Mat.
