Group Policy object - need some information

Windows 2016 Group policy - when is the following executed?

Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts.
On the right-hand side, double-click Startup.

If I add a script here, what are the conditions that will cause the script that I put in startup to launch?

Will it launch following a system reboot or does a user have to log on to the server first?

Computer startup scripts are a useful way of making changes that need to happen regardless of which user is logged on. This is used for adding printers, registering DLLs, editing reg entries... whatever.
Starting with windows 8, startup scripts only run if the computer had done a full shutdown before. If it had done a normal shutdown, it would use fast startup which means, no startup scripts run.

A great explanation is here.
