I plugged my HR10 in yesterday, and it won't get past the "Almost there, just a few minutes more" message. It just all of a sudden kills the signal to my Tv, and then the power LED on the front goes out, and then just sits there.
It's fried isn't it?
If it was in standby when power was removed, it will go back into standby after the next boot. Perhaps you pushed Standby before unplugging it before (I tend to do this as it reduces disk activity.)
The key for me was when it appeared to go dark - that's exactly what happens for Standby - and the fact that you got to "a few minutes more" means that the OS and software loaded, so a lot was working.
