That does seem a bit long. Where did you download the install media from?

Understood. That is indeed strange. Did it ever complete the install?

Sounds like either a bad burn or a CD/DVD drive that's downshifted into PIO mode.

Could also be a defective optical drive (assuming the install is from DVD/CD). Is this the downloaded version or a physical version?

I would suggest a fresh download then (if not successfully installed by now).

Good news. It does sound like a corrupted download. I suggest making a copy for future use (if needed).
