Best Way To Prevent DHCP query in Windows 10

Last Modified: 2017-04-08
Hi
While Windows 10 is booting up, I need to block the OS to require IP address from the DHCP server for a few minutes (~10 min). What is the best way to do this.
(using script stopping the running DHCP client service while Windows 10 is loading is enough then starting the service, is an effective approach?).
I cannot disable the Network Adapter.

Thank You for your help.

Windows does not get confused loading DHCP even though loading other services.

DHCP is totally basic to Windows Networking.  The only way I know how to stop it is to use Static IP addressing. Otherwise it is going to run.
