Have you tried turning flow control off in minicom?

ctrl+a+z -> o -> serial port setup

I had not.  That did the trick, thanks!  Not only did the transmission come through in minicom after doing that, but boot was successful as well.  I'm curious why that would be the case, but happy to be up and running regardless.

Playing around with it some more, I've found that if I have the serial adapter connecting the rockpro64 to my desktop, then the system can boot and function correctly.  But if I disconnect the serial adapter, I get the same behavior as before where the white LED never comes on and the red one blinks.

Is that normal?  I haven't found any mention of others having that issue online.  Am I missing some setup step to configure the system to not need the serial connection on boot?

The early boot spew (on a successful boot with the serial adapter attached) has a couple warnings, not sure if they're relevant:
