This is a very wide known issue, you will need to contact Sony about it as there aren't very many known fixes apart from hooking the HDD up to a SATA port.

The recovery menu is accessed by holding the power button down for 10 secs, therefore if the xmb doesn't load you can still access the recovery menu Smiley Tongue
