After the Windows 10 download, of course i have measured the installation and download time for Windows-10!
The Installation-Time for Windows-10 on Notebooks and Desktop PCs
So, in my test system INTEL Celeron G1610 (2.6 GHz) with 320 GB SATA hard drive:
17 minutes for x32/x86 32-Bit and 22 minutes for x64 64-Bit.
On a SSD same computer 14 minutes for x32 and 16 for Windows-10 x64 installation.
In Virtual-box: on the same computer 25 minutes for x32/x86 32-Bit installation.
On very old (2005) Asus Notebook: AMD Turion X2 ( 2 x 1,66 GHz) with 120 GB IDE 24 minutes for x64 64-Bit installation
on the same computer from USB 19 minutes for x32 32-Bit installation!
Upgrade time from Windows 8.1 to 10 20-40 Min!
Of course, the hard disk speed is the decisive factor. Installation takes less time on the faster computer and the faster transmission rate of the hard drive and the DVD-Rom.
INFO: I noticed on Some slow USB sticks, that starting of the installation takes a long time. After the selecting oft the hard drive partition dialog, it is much faster!
