I just want to thank Pete Batard and the crew behind Zadig for this...
Code:
// Messages that appear in our progress bar as time passes
static const char* progress_message[] = {
    "Installation can take some time...",
    "The installation process can take up to 5 minutes...",
    "You may also be asked to reboot for KMDF upgrades.",
    "If so, please watch for additional popup windows.",    // 1 min
    "The reason driver installation may take time...",
    "...is because a System Restore point is created.",
    "Microsoft offers no means of checking progress...",
    "...so we can't say how long it'll take...",            // 2 mins
    "Please continue to be patient...",
    "There's a 5 minute timeout eventually...",
    "...so if there's a problem, the process will abort.",
    "I've really seen an installation take 5 minutes...",    // 3 mins
    "...on a Vista 64 machine with a very large disk.",
    "So how was your day...",
    "...before it got ruined by this endless installation?",
    "Seriously, what is taking this process so long?!",        // 4 mins
    "Aborting in 45 seconds...",
    "Aborting in 30 seconds...",
    "Aborting in 15 seconds...",
};
four minutes in to an intentionally wedged driver install and I'm furiously looking thru libwdi's sourcecode to find what is coming next...

I normally just end up writing a bunch of cuss words in the comments of my programs when I can't figure something out, and have to remember to go back later on and delete them before I push something to github
