Hi,

anyone else facing the issue when booting a Windows VPS (KVM) the first time after installation (clone) it takes a long time to after it finishes this step:
http://prntscr.com/mwdz4q

Next reboot goes very fast.

Any ideas what this may cause?

AFAIU you have cloned it from another VM. In case of cloning the virtual NICs will get new MAC addresses. In any case when Windows detects HW changes (and from Windows' point of view this is a HW change) the startup phase will last longer.
