A real Atari behaves the same, including Falcon,

Could you please tell me what is the equivalent of "Boot from HD" on
real hardware?

This option is only about the AUTO folder - and it's also mentioned like
this in the manual:

It's just some "ugly" patching of system variables - so there is
no equivalent for this on real hardware.

On a real machine you can bypass the harddisk driver by holding the ALT key during bootup, then the machine will function like a machine without harddrive (eg, load auto and acc stuff from floppy).

So it's a bit of a reverse to Hataris boot from hd.
