      my rig is very similar to yours and it took me between 6-8 minutes at most.

      i have to say though that i reformatted xp pro just yesterday.

        And what is your dvd speed, how much read cache, seek time, is DMA enabled, is the DVD on the same controller as the HD?

                    I started it on two PCs (two legal copies). Started it on my son's PC, P4 3.2 Ghz machine and then on my Core Duo 2.4 about 2 minutes later. The they Duo core took about 10 minutes and finished at almost the exact same time as the P4 3.2.

                    I was surprised considering GEARS took a staggering 45 minutes on my core duo last week.

                    Both machines running XPhome.
