Please help! My xbox wont continue after the Xbox 360 Logo at the start up...

So recently this has happened,  right after the Xbox 360 Logo all i get is a buffering circle and spins for hour and doesnt do anything. I cant log into my account and i cant even get to the dashboard or anything else but i can open up the mini dashboard thing from pressing the X on my controller but that still doesnt help. So after fiddling with my xbox doing anything i could, unplugging everything blowing into it and what not nothing seemed to work. Well i got the idea to take out the memory and see what would happen and now it gets past the buffer symbol but then asks for an xbox live update so i said no to it and it brought me directly to the xbox dashboard. SOOO now i have no idea what is to blame. My hard drive or the xbox itself...

The issue is with the hard drive.  Without it you'll need to update the console again to the 4 gb storage (if you have the Slim console) otherwise you won't be able to get online to play.
