24 minutes here
I made a bootable flash drive and copied the installation files onto it from the DVD, and on my laptop it takes about 15 minutes, desktop about 8-10 or so, give or take.
that is impressive
16 minutes flat since build 7000. Upgrade however takes a lot longer. Approx 1 hour sometimes more.
Wouldn't have taken anymore then 25 mins.
I was actually really surprised with how fast Windows 7 installs.
Well a clean install anyways, took like 20 minutes on my Acer Aspire One D150.
Installed the Professional x64 from an SD card, took 18 minutes on my laptop.
Installed from a USB flash drive to my SSD. Took around 15 mins.
21 min... I am really impressed with windows 7
On my wifes HP netbook using an XBox HD DVD External Drive, although I was not counting the minutes, if I had to guess it took around 30-40 minutes.
On my Core i7 Gaming PC, 10 minutes tops, was insane how quick it went.
Both clean installs.
20 mins for me.
Clean Install.... Something close to an hour, everything worked perfectly though...
clean install of home premium 64bit... 20mins (Y)
16 minutes for ultimate
win7 pro 64-bit
It seems best way to go about this is to create a bootable flash disk and install from it. I noticed it greatly improved the installation time on my second laptop. 12 mins down from 24 mins. 24 mins was on the first laptop. Both laptops have identical hardware.
15 minutes, I'm not sure if my memory of installing XP is just being exaggerated by how long ago it was, but it feels like the Windows 7 installation was a lot faster.
Installed Ultimate x64 from a USB Sandisk Titanium U3 4GB Flash drive and installed it onto a Vertex SSD 60GB.
Booting after the BIOS takes about 10 seconds to a fully bootable OS! :)
+1 and your memory does not fool you :)
From DVD to 640GB WD Caviar Black: Around 15mins from BIOS booting disc to Username setup screen
Got an SSD to set up Windows 7 on properly later, might try my 4gb USB pendrive too :)
from an XP screen, to all programs installed with win7 was about 35 minutes.
Upgrade took about 45mins.. Very impressive! :)
5 hours and counting. Seems it dosnt like my 7800gt
Around 15 minutes from a DVD though I didn't actually time it.
I wasn't paying much attention but it seemed to take about 20 minutes.
