Is the laptop equipped with certain hardware diagnostics? If yes, this will ignore the hard drive bootup and see if you can come up with results that would point to a bad component.

Have a look at this image:
When I say pixelized progress bar, I mean the one that is just black and white and looks like it's part of BIOS ...

It could either be the preinstalled OEM software for running the diagnostics is corrupt or the drive itself is failing.
In regards to the memory test: "The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.
Usually, a Windows disc would not show a progress bar AFAIK. It's either its not booting from the disc due to BIOS boot priority is not set.
Yes, that is the progress bar I'm referring to. It shows when trying to boot from disc.
