The vast majority of Windows 7 installs I've done take about 30 minutes including updates (but excluding drivers).

If you're talking about AutoPatcher, it's fine.

Maybe if you're coming off of a WSUS...but from MS servers? No way - unless you have an updated base image.

Not WSUS, but I'm usually using the latest image off of Dreamspark which I think tend to have a good chunk of them on. Usually has about a gig's worth of updates.

Base image takes me less than 30 minutes. Windows 7 actually updates faster than 10 for me. What takes so long is the detection.
