So do you just need the X server?  Perhaps a pure Win32 one would be easier
for you.  See <>.

Same reason as all the other problems.  Your postinstall scripts didn't run.

I don't see any clear indicaton why these would fail given your cygcheck output.
Are you sure that the Lenovo Client Security Solution isn't getting in your way
(i.e. <>)?  That's all I can see/think of.
If that's not it, you may find that you can either:

   1. Just re-run 'setup.exe' again and it could fix what it tripped over 
the last time.
   2. Try 1.7 instead. <>
