Vista PC hangs after adding to Domain

I completely reloaded an HP PC from the restore CD's. It's Vista Business. I did all the update and service packs. I add it to the domain and the PC hangs at the "Please Wait" screen during boot.

The system boots fine in safe mode. But in normal mode it hangs. I've cancelled all applications from loading at startup, so it appears it's an OS native issue.

Anyone seen this before?

If you used the restore CDs (probably DVDs actually) then it installed the HP bloatware too, so there is no way if knowing where the problem lies. Do a fresh install of the OS, not a restore.

Bloatware was actually pretty minimal since it was a business class machine, not a consumer grade unit.

I didn't do the firmware yet. It's worth a shot.

The question is, why did you do the restore in the first place? What was the issue that made you want to restore? I imagine that same issue is still present. Could be a hardware failure. If that is the case, no amount of software, firmware, updates will help.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

Have you had any successful boots to the new domain? vista machines are notoriously slow on that first boot to the new domain while the sids and guids are updating on the hard drive. And as mentioned, if there are alot of domain policies being pushed it exacerbates the wait.....Vista is such a turd.

It was reimaged because it wasn't being used and we just wanted to get it loaded fresh and ready to go.

I did leave it once overnight. It was at the 3 finger salute screen when I came back. I've seen some machines take a while on the first boot, but this happens ever boot.

When you say it boots in safe mode, are you booting in safe mode with or without networking? If it is with networking, open a command prompt and try pinging:

1) www.google.com

and

2) 64.57.210.225
