Have you already fixed your login/startup problems ?  (You said it was so
I have had some of those things before (with other non-virtual servers);
- Check you event log (Application and System) for errors.
- Is your server in a Domain or is it a Domain controller itself ?  (you can
have (domain) group policy problems..)
- Sometimes the network drivers load to slow.. (keep in mind that the switch
and network card probably also do some SpanningTree/Portfast things.. but
that's no issue with Vm's i think ;).  If the network drivers get loaded to
late... the DHCP and other services get into problems... sometimes you see
results of that in the event log.
You should also see in the event log when the network driver is loaded (or
maybe you should program some debug code in the network driver, so you see
the startup time..)

Hope this helps..
