I believe every board is plugged into mouse/keyboard/network/composite/hdmi/audio. A test sdcard is booted which displays a composite test image and plays an (analogue) sound (from GPU). It then switches to HDMI, a busybox linux is booted which checks for network, mouse and keyboard, and prints PASSED.
