After almost two and a half hours of constant five-to-ten-minute cycles of entering the information, installing and rebooting, there doesn't seem to be any progress occurring. What's the problem?

Most likely there is a problem with your USB thumb drive.
What steps did you use to make the thumb drive?
Have you tried redoing the thumb drive?

I'm deleting and re-converting the file to the USB drive now, and will write back if the problem repeats.
