There were no changes to the bootloader between 7.1 and 7.2.

You said you see nothing, not even the bootloader prompt?

Can you show fdisk output for the usb stick? There was one change:

distrib/utils/embedded/mkimage                  1.62

        Mark the msdos parition active for boards like the
        BeagleBone Black
        [sevan, ticket #1386]

but I am not sure this would affect your case (but if, the difference in
fdisk output should be obvious, and also provide an easy way to test a change).
