Erm...I'm on a mac.
very simple. I think the problem here is your lack of patience; it takes awhile to do this, that's all.
Here is what i did. Put the card in. it shows up in the Finder. Good so far.
Open a term. Then do:
You'll see your sd card as /dev/disk#s# (diskNumberSliceNumber. it is BSD-ish parlance)
you want to then do:
diskutil unmount <name of sdcard>
sudo dd if=<honeycomb image> of=/dev/disk#
Type in an admin password. At this point...go out. Put on a movie. Watch something on hulu. Have sex with you girl/boy/hand/vibrating egg/whatever.
It will take "awhile" depending on several factors...but the point is, if you are "lusting for results" it will take 20mins longer than you want, at least.
When it is done (on my sd dongle thingee, the light stopped flashing. I don't know when, I went out with my wife, then came home and...you get the idea..) the termy will return to the the prompt.
That is really all there is to it. No tricks. Been rockin the Honey for hours and Hours.
It is no iOS, but I will say this: the new hires are a lot more clueful and it isn't too shabby an experience. I expect in a week it will be quite nice.
