How long is it stuck at this screen?  My suggestion is to wait for a couple of hours. To see if it completes. It could be downloading updates in the background. If you do this again, disconnect all external peripherals with the exception of Mouse and Keyboard and see if that helps.

It happened after one of the updates on a brand new computer.
No peripherals.
I tried waiting.
Did not work on this computer (although I know it sometimes does).
Still I ended up doing what you "nobus" suggested.
from there on it's working file.
tx for the info !
