shouldngt make any difference not being activated.
It looks like its not waiting long enough for the network card/network to be ready you could also try setting always wait for network at startup in local gpo (there is also a reg key that does slightly more than this BUt ive had mixed issues using it on win 7 so on your own head be it lol
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
