Windows XP takes 15 minutes to install. I left Vista installing for over 8 hours and it got to 25%. Are you telling me Vista SHOULD take over 24 hours to install? Windows 7 took from 7pm until 11pm to get to 95% and did not progress after that for a couple of hours.
Well sorry for trying to help you. As I said before, having 2GB of RAM for Windows 7 is pushing it, but hey what do I know? I'm just a "newbie."
Don't want to take my advice, that's fine.
Oh, by the way - Have you seen how DIFFERENT Windows 7 and XP are? I'm going out on a limb here, but I'm thinking Windows 7 will take a little longer than xp... but I could be wrong. lol. I don't know why it takes so long, but it does. Any computer I have installed Vista or 7 on has hung at a certain percentage for a while, then suddenly jumped a massive amount.
