The installation should be reasonably fast but the generation of keys
which happens in the setup step will take time.  On a Raspberry Pi 2, it
would take more time than 8 hours.  If it is not a matter of urgency,
please leave it around for a day.

I don't believe it is related to MAC address.

When rebooted, the setup process starts for the beginning again.

Plinth will see it as "setup completed" when keys are present.

If you really really wish to have 2048 bit keys instead of 4096 keys you
can edit /usr/share/plinth/actions/openvpn and start the setup process
again.  This time, it would take considerably set time.
