Mine took longer than 30 minutes, but certainly not EIGHT hours Maybe your DVD was hardly readable for your DVD drive?

Upgrades are longer than clean installs. Also the older your hardware is the longer it will take. But yeah 8 hours is a little too long.

Actually, I think the majority of the time is spent gathering information about your apps and such.

I upgraded my HP (Compaq 2710p) Tablet PC - all it has on it are O07, JDK 1.6, NetBeans, JCreator, GrabIt, Adobe Acrobat, Firefox 3.1b2 and Cygwin - but it took over 3 hours to complete due to it going through the gathering apps and settings stage for almost 2 hours by itself....

Thus why an upgrade is longer generally than a clean install

Right - but except for that one process, the rest of the installation process proceeded at a normal rate - considering it was on a U7600 with 2 GB of RAM on a 4200 RPM SATA drive compared to the rig in my system specs - a significantly faster rig....
