Windows 2003 R2 guest aborts at the login screen when the guest has a network adaptor attached to NAT and the host machines network adaptor is down/not connected.
Work around: Before starting the VM set the "Attached To" field for the adaptor to not attached. This allows the VM to start and operate normally.
