    I am re-installing server 2003 R2. The process has been agonizingly slow -
    going on three hours now, but the last 45 minutes have been staring at
    "saving settings. Setup will complete in approximately 2 minutes." The
    little green lights in the lower right corner of the screen continue to
    flash their pattern, the mouse continues to move and the screen continues to
    display changing advertisements about how great 2003 is.

    All hardware passed all diagnostics.

    What is taking so long here?

  2. Wat is the hardware? Are you doing a "clean" install or installing over
    the existing install?

    Installing over the existing to repair. I couldn't wait any longer so I did
    a hard reset and when I rebooted everything was fine.
