For future reference and in case OP comes back.

I had this problem, (W-7 64bit) however not quite as bad. PC would stall at the cursor but would eventually boot if given enough time, (2 or 3 minutes). I had read somewhere that this may be related to too many USB devices connected. As it happens I had the usual mouse and keyboard, but also 3 external HDDs.
Further research lead me to a forum where a poster had disabled the USB storage function in the BIOS. Once I did that everything is back to normal with fast boot times. No problem with functionality of the HHDs or other USB peripherals was noticed.
