[U-Boot] [OT] trying to boot zedboard just to u-boot, having no luck

  i've asked on the meta-xilinx mailing list, and rummaged around the
net, and have failed to do something that should be straightforward --
i want to simply boot an avnet zedboard to a recent u-boot and stop
there; i have no need to go any further for the time being.

  i have no problem configuring and building u-boot using:

  $ make zynq_zed_defconfig

and as a test, i've tried to download any pre-built SD card
images/files just to verify that the board boots, with absolutely no
luck. i've formatted and re-formatted SD cards, populated them with
allegedly working image files, checked and rechecked jumper settings
to boot from SD card, used minicom and picocom to connect to the UART
port ... all i ever see is the power LED come on, and never anything

  if someone can point me at a recipe that is verified to work to get
u-boot up and running on this zedboard, i would be eternally grateful,
because i'm running out of ideas.
