    This is the Mac Pro forum not the MacBook Pro forum, so you're in the wrong place. But you may very well have damaged the hard drive, and it's attempting to read through the bad sectors as it starts. Save your data off of it immediately, then run some drive tests to see if that's the problem. If so, a new hard drive is inexpensive to install yourself (if you know how), or you can of course have Apple do it.
