Frank-
Its not a bad suggestion but that just disables slow link detection and neither 
the logs nor event errors seem to indicate that it is a problem during that 
phase of processing. The very first thing a computer tries to do after it pings 
the DC is authenticate itself to AD so that it can ask AD where it lives in the 
hierarchy. That is the point at which its failing. However, nothing can hurt at 
this point :)
