Yes, it’s a bug in the /etc/rc script, and it’s never stopped my boot
before—I was just writing it in my message to indicate what stage the
script it at before the boot problem hits—thanks for providing a
solution to something I’ve been meaning to fix for ages though!

I’ve never seen the problem booting from a CD nor booting to Windows, so
I don’t think it’s a HDD problem.

Thanks for your reply.
