Lets see if we can find the problem causing the freeze in the boot process.
Open your case and remove any PCI cards (Modem, USB or 1394 PCI cards, Sound, ect. ect.) and all external hardware that is plugged in, only leave the Keyboard, Mouse, & Monitor plugged in, then boot up and see if the boot process will finish, if not shutdown and unplug the Keyboard & Mouse, then try.
If the computer boots properly then start installing the removed hardware 1 item at a time, boot up after each one till you find the faulty piece. If found this doesn't mean that the hardware is bad could be just corrupted drivers.
Post back with your progress.
