So do you just need the X server? Perhaps a pure Win32 one would be easier
for you. See <http://www.straightrunning.com/XmingNotes/>.

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. <http://cygwin.com/acronyms/#BLODA>)? 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. <http://cygwin.com/#beta-test>
