Lately, not sure why, but when booting up my Server 2008 Domain Controller (holds all roles) It sits at "Applying computer settings" for an extremely long time and I receive the following error message in the event logs, any ideas?

I had the same issue with Applying computer settings but my fix was actually configuring some settings on the NIC. If you go to your NIC Properties then go to configure then click Advanced see if the TCP Checksum, TCP Offload, and IP Checksum are disabled or enabled? Do you  have the 64-bit or 32-bit verison?

They were all enabled. I disabled them going to reboot now. I read some stuff relating to that but noone said it fixed their issue so I didn't bother...

Ended up resolving it myself. I don't know why but replication was broken between this machine and the VM that was a DC running GC (nothing else, moved all roles to host OS). DCPROMO'd it off, removed the entry from sites and services, rebooted the host OS and it fired right up. Not sure what caused the originating issue however.
