    For future reference, the Verbose vs normal status messages group policy has been renamed to Display highly detailed status messages in Windows 8/8.1 and Server 2012/2012 R2 (and Windows 7 if you use the latest ADMX files).

    This is an interesting one this, from my experience it could be a number of problems. What machines do you have are these RM? I have seen a few machines get stuck on windows when the sata cable on the hard drive comes slightly dislodged also a few when the hard drives have bad sectors. But recently for I had one machine that was a power problem as I swapped out the DC DCB power module and it was fine. Very frustrated with this! Do they get stuck on Windows each time or is it intermittent? My machines only get stuck on Windows from a PXE boot startup job in the morning which was interesting.

    Not sure if this has already been suggested or not, but check spanning tree on the switch. We had some new switches which had been configured for fast spanning tree and this caused a log on problem. This has been changed to standard and now the machines boot fine. I don't know the full details as it wasn't me who was looking at it but everything else we tried still resulted in the same error being reported. It was as if the machine was coming up too fast and couldn't get a network connection as a result it took an age to log on and was stuck on please wait or welcome...

    That is possible, might be worth moving the PC to a different physical location in the school and test it?

    If I remember rightly from a seminar if spanning tree is turned on for ports where PC's are attached when the PC is turned on the port starts to negotiate the tree so it can take a few seconds to sort. While this is happening the PC can not communicate so if you have a PC that boots quite fast (which most do these days) it interferes. You can test this visually by turning Spanning tree on for one port, off for another and then turning PCs attached to those ports on. The port lights will settle much quicker on the non-spanning tree port.
    Recommendations were to only have spanning tree on ports that connect to other switches. In case of a network storm this will not protect PCs on the same switch but will limit the storm to that one section.

    If it is a software-related issue you could use the Windows Performance Toolkit to diagnose the problem.

    Start it in Safe Mode. If remove/disable the drivers one by one til you indentify which one is causing trouble.
    After that look for an updated driver for the device with the issue.

    We found that if you unplug the network cable it gets to the logon screen OK but as soon you plug it back it gets stuck. We have enabled the verbose message in GPO and that seems to suggests its getting stuck at software installation however, that only happens when you use pupils logon credentials it does not happen with administrator credentials. We have Dell PCs. Really frustrating...

    We had this at our place. One of my technicians found a fix on the ms site. Ive got the patch at work that i can dig out and upload for the ones who are having the problem.

    It certainly stopped our problem. We found before the patch the machine would fail to apply a specific group policy and the machines that were causing the problem were the dell 755.
