Is it normal for the screen to be frozen while doing a startup repair?

Ok windows stucks on welcome, it will not boot so i am doing a startup repait but its stuck

It asked meif i want to do system recovery and i clicked no cancel , (only repair) but the blue bar that moves while its repairing it doesnt move its frozen and it says attempting repairs... nothing moves.

You should have accepted System Restore since it has already identified that would likely start it. Let it complete then if it won't start boot back in to System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair again and this time accept Restore. If it doesn't offer it then run it from the options list.
