Any idea of Installing XP in 5 to 10 minutes?


Hello there Jeffrey,

So about your question on the possibility of installing XP in 5 to 10 minutes.

My answer is yes but i think you cannot call this process an installation.

Because i upon my experience this process is like doing un attended installation of XP and of course its very fast 5 to 10 minutes only because you are only migrating the OS.

But there is another way to create a fast XP restoration using Ghost32.exe but there are couple of things that you need to do this.

1. Is the HP USB utility

2. Ghot32.exe

3. Image of your XP (meaning a clean installation image that you create for restoration.)

4. USB flash driver at least 2 gig.

Well this is a very complicated task. The step by step guide if you want to learn here is the link please click here

Hope this solve your problem and have a nice day!

The speed of the installation or the amount of time consumed when installing Microsoft Windows XP all depends on the capacity or the specification of your computer. The whole installation is actually fast even for a Pentium 4 processor but making it to finish at least within 10 minutes I guess is not possible.

My sister has an Acer Aspire laptop powered by Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz processor with 3 GB RAM and this is the fastest computer we have in our house. And even if it is the fastest, the time it took for me to finish installing Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 on this machine is far greater than the time you specified.

The duration of the installation depends on many factors. One is the processor of the computer. The faster the processor is the better for your computer. It will be able to open, process, and run programs much faster. Another is the total amount of RAM. Even if you have the fastest processor but you have a small amount of RAM installed then your computer would still not be able to run in its optimum speed.

Another factor is the different devices attached to your computer. During the installation, the process detects all devices installed on your CPU. The system does this so it can install all the drivers required for the installation. It will only add drivers that are compatible with your computer. The more devices attached to your computer, the longer it takes for the process to finish.

Even if Windows doesn’t have a compatible driver for a device, it will still make an effort to check all available drivers to match the device and this already consumes time thinking that this is not the only device Windows will check.
