I have an HP Pavillion dv9000 (dv9420us). I have a similar experience,
but I've also found a work-around.
If, when the the BIOS Splash screen is just about to disappear, one
starts pressing <spacebar>, then the boot slice prompt comes up. Press
<enter> and the laptop boots normally. It's a big hassle, but it works.
