As part of our hands-on-lab builds (www.microsoft.com/sqlserverlabs), I frequently have to install .MSI files.
Using unattended installations for the majority of software installations significantly reduces installation time.

The process below indicates how to install a .MSI unattended.

How to install an MSI file unattended

MSIEXEC /a 'product.msi' /qn

MSIEXEC /a 'd:downloadsDataExplorer_1.0.3207.2 (64-bit)' /qn

Typically this installation will not show any user interaction or verbose logging.
Combine with the Full MSI Syntax options as listed below to output installation progress to a log file.

Other installation considerations - passive mode

Another great option to consider is using the /passive parameter.
This parameter will provide UI interaction and show progress graphically.

MSIEXEC /a 'product.msi' /passive
