The following message appears on bootup:

Additional Information

Some security settings applied by ggLeap are Windows Group Policy settings which require a reboot to come into effect. In order to accomplish this, the ggLeap client forces an automatic reboot. Because ggRock discards writebacks on system boot, the changes are immediately lost and a boot loop results.

Additionally, please ensure the VM or Machine you use to perform this procedure is in the same security group as the rest of the Machines, otherwise a similar boot loop will occur.
