Hi!

Will most likely be the dhcp request, which of course does not find any
dhcp server.

When you are sitting at the console, simply press CTRL-C after "Doing
initial network setup: hostname" ist displayed and the box is sitting
there. The process dhclient will then be terminated and the boot process
continues.
