I got my Dell Mini 10v today, but it only has standard 8.04, and I want the 9.04 netbook remix. So, I'm following the instructions for creating an installable flash drive here:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromImgFiles

As I'm doing it from a Mac, the instruction set I'm using is at the very bottom, for OS X. I've executed step 7. And I'm waiting ... and waiting ... and waiting.

My question, therefore: how long does this generally take? It's been over an hour, and the .img still has yet to fully install on my little USB flash drive.

Well, the answer is: about two hours. It is done!

Glad you got it on your flash drive. But it is odd that it took you 2 hours to install it on your flash drive.
