I have installed a local instance of sql 2014

just trying to do an insert of 76700 records to a table

it has been running 20 minutes now

I did in sp_who2  do not see any blocks

if I do a  select count(id) from name with (nolock)  it shows 76700   yet the query is still running

I'm confused

are there some settings I should be looking at ?
