just to prep you kiddos

I believe it will be roughly the same time period on all hardware...

about 25-30 minutes for the Windows based install process. The one where you see it "installing" itself from the desktop. Then it will have that "do not turn off, installing updates 1 of 3" thing....that will take about 30 minutes as well.

so plan for an hour for the process

have some system, device drivers handy just in case too
