You need to give details of your hardware - processor, ram, hard disk and so forth.

For that spec machine I would have expected it to have completely installed by 60 minutes. Did you manage to reclaim the whole 12GB back from NTFS, the only other thing I can think of is there maybe a problem with the RAM, does the BIOS pick it up correctly on bootup?
