Hmm. Removing the drivers and disabling the ethernet OB card
in the bios and physically removing the wifi card didn't help.
Manually disabling the extra services that run in safe mode with
networking and not in normal safe mode didn't make cygwin run 
Could someone advice on how to debug this further. Maybe a
link or something.
I need to get the NFS server running and I would really prefer
not paying big $$$ for an inferiour windows product.
