One way to try to speed up the installation a bit is to install the
eatmydata-udeb package when using d-i.  I believe booting the installer
with this kernel argument should do the trick:

  preseed/early_command="anna-install eatmydata-udeb"

How much time you save will depend on how many packages you want to

Happy hacking
