System booted. Stuck at what looks to be a windows screen that says welcome at the top left and that’s it.

Does this normally take a long time?

Reinstall OS, TC.

In my general experience, nothing in regards to booting windows takes 15 minutes when on an HDD unless it's corrupted or something is failing.
OK so your saying it tried to use a blocked port, got blocked, and switched to an unblocked port while waiting for the user to respond? - Why I love Gfaqs.
