People keep saying this, but I've installed it six or seven times now and it doesn't feel much faster than the XP Pro installation did. Granted, I haven't busted out a stopwatch or anything like that, but it doesn't feel substantially faster to me than XP.Rusty075 wrote:Installing Vista on a clean drive takes 10 minutes.
I have definitely never had an install happen in ten minutes, however. The machine was A64 3000+, gig of ram, 250GB hard drive, DVD drive, 7600GS. Not exactly bleeding edge, but I'd say the average install time is more like twenty five minutes or so.
The install also has these weird "hangs" where the computer looks like it's frozen for a few minutes at a time. Took me a while to figure out it was just "thinking" and I needed to let it be.
