Since you've already downloaded the packages, you can just remove the
installed directory (don't remove setupXXX.exe or mirror copies! Only the
directory where you've it installed) and restart setup in "install from
local directory" mode.
That'd be the fastest way. You'll just have to re-run setup afterward to
update installed components from internet.
