Remove and refit the hard drive and retry , leave on mains power until smart test completed.

or

enter BIOS and disable SMART and retry

@ fruit bat, how do i enter BIOS cause i don't have control once the booting starts

pressing del as soon as it starts should put you in the BIOS (setup)

There should be a message on the screen as it starts that says something like "Press Del to enter setup..."
