After installing cloudbase-init 0.9.11-dev1 on Windows 2016 Server and creating a generalized OpenStack image from it, the instance itself starts well, but Windows boot up process cannot proceed till the login screen. Windows showing endless rotating circle and cmd popup windows with logdir, logfile, verbose deprecation warnings (same screen was seen on Windows 2012R2, but has no influence on booting ability).

Tried both on KVM (with VirtIO injection) and Hyper-V platforms.

Seems on Win2016 the network stack is not fully purged during cloudbase-init & sysprep stage. As a workaround "ipconfig /release" command was issued before installing cloudbase-init. After that everything works fine, just created OpenStack images can be successfully spawned, they receive their metadata, IP addresses and all other stuff.

Issue unrelated to cloudbase-init or the underlying hypervisor:
