Can somebody please let me know how long it took to install the mandatory disc for 360. Trying to determine if I should take a 30 min break from work to setup install. Thanks ahead of time.

It takes around 15 minutes to install disc 1.

I usually install discs, and it only takes a few minutes. Maybe 5 minutes?

The GTA IV install disc has its own installer though. You actually launch the game to start the install, rather than hitting "X" for game details and doing the install that's possible for any game. It's possible that the standard install does the same thing, but I didn't try it. And yeah, it took quite a while to finish. It was probably extracting stuff rather than just copying the game data as-is to the HD.

I installed both discs. Took about 45 minutes.

Your only supposed to install the disk marked install. The game is made to be with the second disk being in DVD drive while the installed content streams from the hard drive.

Rockstar actually recommended against installing the 2nd disc, because the game takes advantage of being able to stream from two different data sources (HDD and disc). By installing both discs on the HDD, you've essentially created a bottleneck and the performance will actually suffer as result. You can get around that issue by installing the 2nd disc on an USB storage device instead of the HDD.
