Understanding imx8mqevk and booting linux from sdcard

Hello: Just getting started with the i.MX 8M Quad Eval kit. I'm interested in running Linux from the sdcard. To start with I have downloaded a pre-built example from the knowledge base L4.14.98_2.0.0_ga_images_MX8MQEVK. From here I reference the i.MX Linux guide, chapter 4.3.2 "Copying the Full SD Card Image". Issuing the command sudo dd if=fsl-image-validation-imx-imx8mqevk.sdcard of=/dev/sdb bs-1M && sync  this yields 2 partitions on the SD Card a Boot imx8mq and a 2.0 GB Volume. 

Install the sdcard and change SW801 to 1100 and I get no activity.  is the .sdcard file intended to be all that you need to boot from the sdcard, or is there another step?
