GUI on the fsl-image-gui build

I've built the "fsl-image-gui" with a framebuffer back end for my SABRE Quad board and when I booted it up I saw a "Yocto project" boot bar, and then after the kernel booted it was replaced by a static image of a serial console. Basically a black screen that says:

 

 

Please wait: booting...

Poky (Yocto Project Reference Distro) 1.6.2 imx6qsabresd /dev/tty1

 

 

imxq6sabresd login:

 

 

This is not a true reflection of the serial console, as if I'm connected to minicom at the time, I can interact with the serial prompt but what I do is not mirrored over the HDMI, the HDMI always just shows the same static serial prompt login screen.

 

 

Is there something I'm supposed to do to swap that login image for the actual GUI, which I assume is present on a "fsl-image-gui" build.
