How long should first boot take?

I can't get into Fastboot to run 4ext recovery, what I was running for recovery before trying to move to CM9 from HD Revolution. In fact, the only way I could get to recovery before trying to go to CM9 was by selecting to reboot into recovery from ROM Manager.
So, how do I go about repairing my fastboot? .img file? I've used Odin to repair my Epic 4G before. Is it the same process for an HTC phone? Where do I find the instructions?

Just fyi, what you did was extremely risky. If you've got a phone with a working rom that won't boot into fastboot, and the only way to get to recovery is to boot from the rom, flashing a different rom (especially an experimental one such as this) is a big risk because if the flash doesn't work, you're screwed. It sounds like your bootloader is corrupted, I think the .img file contains a complete phone image, including the bootloader.
No. First off, that's a European download. Second, it's a .zip file, which means you can only flash it from recovery, which you can't get to. YOU NEED A .img FILE.

There are essentially two methods for flashing. One is using .zip files, one is using .img files. The zip is a normal, zipped version of the software, the .img is a binary image which is mapped bit by bit onto the memory. OTA updates come via a PG581MG.img file which is downloaded to the sd card, and fastboot looks for this file every time it starts, and flashes it if present. Zip files can only be flashed by a custom recovery.
If I were you, before doing anything else I'd see if the phone responds to ADB commands during the bootloop.

How would I do this?

I get a device not detected error, but I don't know that I have the drivers installed.

You should be fine to flash CM9 from 4ext, afaik. Isn't that what you did in the first place though? Which rom are you coming from? Did you do a superwipe?

At any rate, it's up and running CM9 now. Everything seems stable at 1.38GHz CPU, or whatever the highest was.
I even installed the Purple CM9 Holo Theme; it's my fiance's phone. I was sweating bullets, for a second. If I hadn't gotten it working, she would have been pissed.
Thanks for all of the suggestions.
