Had it offered this morning and seemed to be going ok, but after the configuration and restart its now said Please Wait for 45 minutes and drive activity seems to have stopped.
Is this normal?
Grateful for any advice.

Forget it, as soon as I posted the thread up came the Ctrl-Alt-Del to logon request.
Now stuck on Welcome. Oh well.

Still stuck on Welcome - an hour now

Is this normal?

It should take about 30 minutes to install.

From what I remember there were 3 reboots and 3 'stages' each time.

It's seems to be ok now. The welcome bit went about 10 mins after my last post, then I got a black screen with just the cursor for about 20 mins. Finally the desktop appeared.
Only one reboot though, at the end of the installation within Windows.

Computer shows SP1 so all must have gone through. Be interesting to see how long it takes to boot on Tuesday.
In all the process took 2 hours after download had completed.
Funny how much it varies.
Thanks very much, will tick now.
