    Does anybody know how far in the setup you must get before you can remove the installation media from the computer and it can complete the rest of the setup on its own?

    yup and yup

    I always forget and if the system is hard set to boot to that media, I come back to the setup screen. Really irritating lol

    Why would you remove it? You really don't have to unless you are extremely OCD :D

    Never used RT Seven so not sure why don't you actually try it instead of asking questions that will be answered when you do installation :rolleyes:

    only if you press a key.

    removing the disc means it will reboot a little faster.
