Hi Chris. Welcome to the forums.
Normally it will just take a few seconds for the box to turn yellow. It doesn't really matter where you install Odin. If you haven't already, power off your phone and try it again. If you have Kies, make sure it isn't running. It can interfere with Odin.
Are you using a PC and has it recognized your phone in the past?
