Yes, but there is work involved before. It also depends if you mean "on a given machine" or on any machine, and if you are implying that unneeded (by you) parts of the OS might get lost in the process or not.

Imaging comes as first obvious way, nLite and vLite come as second (check their forums here, be aware they are for personal use only). Hardware might play a role in your 5 minutes, and the way in which (from what media) you physically transfer the install files can impact your time as well.

If you strip xp to bare minimum on a fast machine and with a usb drive for your source you could get a install of sub 5 minutes.

nLite is a program that transform an original XP install source (read MS XP install CD) in a modified install source.

Depending what you remove(things you are 100% sure you will really never need) and add (Windows updates and drivers for your machine so you don't spend time to install them post install).

-Download and install nLite (the program) on a machine; 4 minutes

-run nlite a first time (discover all parameters); 40 minutes

-installing resulting XP set of files; 9 minutes.

-redoing it for fun and tweaking... for some it's a life style.

Have you checked if you're not beter off with imaging ? (installing once, taking an image of the install, re-applying the image would take very short time)

The fastest deployment I have personally seen is deploying an XPe image to an SSD using DISM took just over 40 seconds.

No D-tubes involved, much later models, K-tubes were used, AFACR.
