Deploying images for XP or Windows 7 takes somewhere between 4 hours to 9 hours
Mostly the cause is from the Networking point of view and configuration of Network Devices (Like Layer 3 Routers and Switches).
b. From the same Windows XP workstation, establish a network connection to the image file source and "drag copy" all files of the same image to a directory on the hard drive. This process will probably take +30 minutes since this IS using SMB which is being throttled on the network.
