Please excuse my lack of knowledge on this, I am a super noob on this one!

I have installed chocolatey and also geth-stable.bat

How do I link to a wallet and start mining?

    I thought following should be done
    geth --networkid 12345 account new
    > Passphrase: B...5
    > Repeat Passphrase: B...5
    
    geth --networkid 12345 2>> G:\Temp\Ethereum\my2.log console 
    > miner.setEtherbase(eth.accounts[0]) 
    > miner.start() 
    > eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase).toNumber();
    But my log is stuck on following lines and balance remains 0

    Maybe you can use this tutorial http://adeduke.com/2015/08/how-to-create-a-private-ethereum-chain/
    It shows how to create an Account with some money in it and it seems that mining also works.
