Windows 7 recovery

#1
I have a HP dv5 that will not load windows. It says to reload the windows cd and do recovery. I downloaded the 64 bit Windows recovery from here and burned it from Power ISO. I made the cd-rom the first bootable device from the BIOS menu. I entered the CD and it popped up press enter to boot from CD. I did. And then it goes to loading windows files. And the Windows icon startup starts and now for the past 5 hours I have a black screen with a mouse cursor I can move. Any suggestions to what may be wrong?
