Up to this point, I consider it the "installation" phase.

These steps I do not consider to be part of the installation.
However, as they are important steps following the installation of
any piece of software, let alone an operating system, I should
probably revise my definition of "installation."

Yeah, having to reboot after those service packs are a pain.  But
we're getting off-topic here.  I still think that an installation
that is easy to understand and use to someone who's never used it
is ideal.  Hence my support for the Windows 2000 installer.
