    Yes we do...

    OK, on the PC we had moved to an empty OU we booted it in to safe mode and disabled any services (MSCONFIG) that were started on a standard PC in our office.
    Rebooted.
    The PC started normally and removed some software that now was nt applicable - all good

    We then went back in to safe mode - MSCONFIG and reset everything back to normal and it still booted fine.

    I am now going to move it back to the correct OU - log in as a student and shutdown illegally and see if I can make the problem return....

    Check Bios also does it have it's own power adapter or does it have an external one, Sounds really stupid I know but worth testing.

    Take of PXE Boot and try again?

    After much trial and error !!!!!!!!!!!

    The offending Service is....

    DHCP

    Now what?

    Can DHCP local service be repaired?

    Thanks - just tried a sfc and came up with no issues.

    Also tried to re-apply SP1 but it told me it was already installed....

    I've had this before and found simply pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL is enough to bring up the login window....

    Sadly in our case the PC is not responsive to mouse movements and CTRL+ALT+DEL does nothing.

    Interestingly:

    In safe mode with networking the DHCP service is started and the PC boots straight to CTRL+ALT+DEL

    but if we use MSCONFIG (from within safe mode) and disable JUST disable the DHCP Client service then the PC does boot correctly....but with it enabled - it sticks at "Please Wait"

    Could it be that it's NOT the DHCP service that is the issue - but by disabling DHCP it's preventing something else happening which IS causing the Please Wait issue

    If I ONLY disable the GROUP POLICY CLIENT service - the PC also boots correctly and gets the CTRL+ALT+DEL screen within a minute.

    Could it be a rogue policy somehow half-installed on the PC?
    If so, how could I flush it out?
