Windows Server 2012 taking to long to load into windows

I recently purchased a new Dell Server with Windows Server 2012. I setup active directory, DHCP, DNS, and File Server roles including windows updates. Now when the server restarts in takes 15-20 minutes to boot into windows and says Please Wait for a long time. The reboot process is normal but the loading into windows isn't. Any ideas of what might be causing this issue?

Thanks

Have you disabled IPv6 by any chance? That happened to me before with Server 2008.

Have you installed any AntiVirus software? Also is there anything in the application or system event logs to indicate a problem?

I'm still waiting for the server to boot into windows. I haven't disabled the IPv6 but will try that and will check the logs. The anti-virus I installed is Kaspersky so would that cause the issue?

Kaspersky could well cause issues. I would try removing it and trying again to see...
