I had a smiller problem, my cpu chip went bad and to frooze up during
the same area. The problem could be related to the RAM being used can
is causing it to lock or freeze in the bios. Try flashing the bois. If
you are sure it is the hard drive. install the drive into your
computer to see if you get the same thing. if you do, the mater boot
record is bad and you will need to fix it. If that is not the case
take a closer look at the RAM, CPU and motherboard. How old is the
computer? what type of motherboard and CPU are is he using?
Good luck.
