The COM port number shouldn't make a difference. This happened to me as well. It's a somewhat flaky issue, sometimes just trying it again works. Also, if you're on Vista or Windows 7, make sure you run Odin in administrator mode (right-click => Run in administrator mode).
If that doesn't work then, when it's at the same stage as in your screenshot, try:
- disconnecting it
- popping the battery
- starting in download mode again
- reconnecting it
If that doesn't work, start the whole process again, but swap number 3 and 4 around (connect it, then start it in download mode).
* Disclaimer: The Portal's a good phone in that it's hard to actually brick, but it's not impossible. No guarantee that the above won't brick it
