The general advice us wait it out, but you should have had some response by now.

One thing you can do is ores Command L. This will bring up the log and show you what is going on.

If it really us stuck, try a force reboot . You can do a clean install by rebooting and pressing  command R. NB THERE IS GOOD CHANCE DATA LOSS WILL OCCURR WITH THESE OPTIONS.
