Windows 10 reboot take forever as soon as we put them on out domain, and run a gpupdate and restart.  These are new PCs.

Does anyone have any suggestion how I might be able to locate the root of this problem?
I think it has to do with our GPOs.

Service Debug log (gpsvc.log) (used to be UserEnv Debug Logging) is your friend ;-)

If you don't know much about it, you can start here:

A few questions:

Does it happen before or after the user logs in?

How many GPOs are effective on the PC ?

Does it happen with Windows 7 PCs ?

If you reinstall Windows 10 on one of them do you still have the slow login problem ?

Do you have any Windows 10 specific GPOs ?

I've seen slow logins due to GPO replication problems between domain controllers.  GPOs exist files and folders in a replicated folder named with a GUID in SYSVOL.  

If your computer or user has a GPO assigned to it but it can't read the gpt.ini file some reason it will wait to time-out.

Time-out due to failures to access GPO files will be recorded in the System Event Log.

Also, is it possible updates are being installed? That makes reboots a bit of a nightmare sometimes - especially on a new machine that's been built from an image a few months old.

I don't think that updates could cause a slow boot. That would mean that the network card received an IP address & connected to MS before the boot was completed.

Thanks for all the suggestions.  the root of the problem was with a gpo to uninstall an application event if the application was already uninstall.
