Win 7 Installation time

Hi everyone

I found my prpblem! When Win 7 was installed the first time, I stopped the install but noticed a 200mb partition created by Win7. This 200mb I deleted when I restarted the installation. That action created my 8 hr problem.
So I deleted everything and started from fresh with the installation and it took only 40 min to install Win7!

I noticed Win7 deleted this 200mb partition after the installation was nearing completion.

Thanks for all the help

Windows 7 Build 7100

Windows 7 deleted the 200MB Partition?? I don't think so. I understand you won't see it under My Computer because it is used for the boot partition. Similiar to linux to keep the boot options seperate from the system files incase of errors or corruption you can easily repair your boot partition rather then having to reinstall the whole OS and all your programs again. This is the explaination for the 200MB partition. and to answer your question about how long it should take. I timed my install with build 7000 and it took 20 min and 18 seconds.
