A quick, non-scientific timing shows 124 seconds from entered administrator
password to "Welcome to the domain" dialog.

Grabbed with tcpdump from a VMware image, from bootup till domain join
complete. (I still have no idea why every outgoing packet is recorded twice.)

Looking at the logs, it seems like it's faster than two minutes this time
(I did the timing in another run). The largest delay (except for the delays
inherent in, well, booting up and me typing the administrator password) seems
to be a 47-second delay in-between some TCP activity on port 445...
