Creating a Group Policy network start timeout policy The GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue policy timeout can be specified in the registry in two locations:" HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Winlogon " HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System You can do this by adding a DWORD value of GpNetworkStartTimeoutPolicyValue with a number of seconds between 30 and 600. Windows reads the Winlogon subkey first. Then, Windows reads the Policies subkey. The value in the Policies subkey supersedes any value in the Winlogon subkey. There is no user interface that you can use to set this Group Policy object (GPO). Therefore, you have to deploy a custom ADM file in order to set the GPO.
