FYI.. it may take hours and hours and hours according to how big your
database is.... You NEED to let it recover...

If it never recovers... not sure how long to define never, as I had one take
about 6 hours on a old server... but anyway, if it doesn't recover then you
can do some command-line magic, expand the tempdb and whatever else needs
done then it should finally recover.. Sorry, I don't remember the
"command-line magic" but if no one else provides it I will dig through my
wall of books and find it.
