One new server we deployed took, [in our experience] almost 48 hours to deliver, however, we experienced boot failures and were only able to get into the operating system while selecting the boot disk device manually at start up. This means in the event of a failure or reboot, the system would not recover to OS. IBM helpdesk made bios adjustments beyond what is allowed within the IMPI management, however, the system never booted properly. Had to cancel months later.
That speed also applies to the provision of new additional services (for example dedicated firewall).
