Group policy taking several logins and restarts to apply all

Last Modified: 2013-11-25
We have a DC running Server 2008 Std, and XP SP3 clients are taking several restarts and gpupdates beforet they get ALL of their group policies. Is there any way we can force the client to download ALL group polcies without having to do this?
In our situation, this would be highly beneficial for new workstations that are delivered to the field where IT Staff is no on site. Anyone with ideas I would highly appreciate it!
