It may be that your using Windows XP clients and have not set the policy to force the clients to wait for the network - without that setting, software deployment GPOs don't apply.

i have just implemented the  
- wait for the network at computer startup and logon to the computer under Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon
- gpupdate on server
- rebooted the XP PC
- checked gpresult, i can see the policy has been applied, but no msi installation happening

Reboot one more time.  Once you make the policy change, you have to reboot so the client gets the policy and knows that later reboots, it should wait.
