You have installed an auto-started service configured for a non-localsystem account.
When the system is starting, the system pauses at the blank blue screen for ~90 seconds and then the logon prompt appears.


Add the NWCWorkstation service as a dependency to your non-localsystem service.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Client Services for Netware (CSNW) is installed and the NWCWorkstation service isn't configured to run in a group (default for CSNW).
  2. Another auto-start service is installed that runs in a non-LocalSystem account.
  3. The Auto-start service from step 2 comes before NWCWorkstation service alphabetically in the registry:


    or it belongs to a service load order group. (Services that belong to a load order group always start before a service that doesn't belong to a load order group.)

  4. Restart the computer.
