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 :smileytongue:
