    It took about 7 - 8 minutes from clicking restart to when my machine was ready for me to log in.

    Remember how long it took to do Win7 updates or GADS, a clean install? This is sheer heaven.

    XP was more of a horror with all those dependent updates to updates that were dependent on something else. And the .net nightmare!

    I can vividly remember seeing 100+ updates on Win 7 THEN would pop up the service pack and then MORE updates. And if any of these updates failed, you were hosed.

    Been a long time, but I think the advice back then was to do chunks of updates at a time. That's when we could actually choose which ones with a simple click.

    Well, a good bit of your speed is now relegated to your download speed. Mine still took far longer to DL than it should have - I have a 330Mbps pipe (that routinely shows well above 360) meaning I should be able to sustain, a tthe bare minimum, 25 MB/s - which, for 5 GB worth of files, means it should take around 200 seconds. Let's say for the sake of argument that we double that - 400 seconds to download (6 minutes and change). then it still takes a good while performing the initial installing step - far too long, IMO.

    XP was murder. Plus the need to routinely disable AV software....

    I always installed the SP first before attempting to even connect to Windows Update. Made life a heck of a lot easier.

    I did SP first (with XP, I just installed SP2 over clean XP install until I finally built an XP install disc with SP2 integrated, and with Win7, I just downloaded the updated 7 install disc with SP1 integrated when I still had my TechNet account active).

    Me, too, Marty. Maryland is practically in the Atlantic Ocean! I got it around 1:15. Rural VA should have it. Then, there's always plan "B".......
