How long did you let the install sit-and-churn?

Yesterday, I completed a fresh install on bare-metal and I too noticed what appeared to be a freeze during the installation. In fact, there were two such incidents. I opted to open a copy of the system monitor and watched the CPU activity. There was plenty so I just left the installation process to do it's thing.

Installation completed but it did take a bit longer than LM would have.
