Really? On my desktop I'm already all set up and ready to go except for utorrent! (All my downloads are on my external drive, which is currently being used to backup my Netbook's hard drive)
Took me less than an hour and a half. Plus, now my desky goes from coldboot to login screen in 26 seconds!
Yeah because I was using a Windows 8 DVD and USB 2.0 flash drive to install drivers. Downloading and installing [for real this time] ~60 Windows updates took me a while and more updates for Microsoft Office 2013.
You can't even install Windows from a USB 3.0 port... 0.o (Or at least I don't think you can) so I was installing off USB 2.
But I also downloaded a pre-updated copy as of June so I only had to install 21 updates... :D
