RE: stuck on recovery screen for hours
Reboot, tap F8 at startup to go into SafeMode.
Do a System Restore
Start>Programs>Accesories>System Tools>System Restore.

OR, to reinstall vista:

To reinstall, hit either F2 or Delete to go into BIOS, or F12 to go into
boot menu, and one way or the other set the DVD/CD Drive to be 1st in the
Boot Order; insert Vista DVD, reboot.

Then load files, delete existing Vista partition, format, install Vista.
