Is my hardrive the reason for the Xbox to freeze at the intro?

I turned on my xbox, and I have to wait for the Xbox 360 starting intro to go away and lead directly to the profile selection but it doesn't. I left it there thinking it would eventually go away and it's still loading even after 10 minute of waiting. So I then remove my HDD and then it works. It goes directly to the profile selection. Is my hardrive the cause for this to happen?

@infectors:

Do you have warranty on your xbox (or on your hdd - if you bought it afterward because you have 4gb version) ?

If you have it - then it is a warranty issue.

If you have not warranty anymore: it is xbox or hdd problem.

So you should check it. Do you have the possibility to lend a hdd from a friend ?. Try to use it. If it works - then it is your hdd (so buy new). If it doesnt work - then it is your xbox that need repair.

I dont think it is possible to clear hdd cache with hdd removed. And you cant replug hdd when xbox is running because

you can damage it.

It would be interesting question for the ambassadors forum :)
