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

or

enter BIOS and disable SMART and retry

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..."
