When I start my PS3, I hear a beep from my speakers and I am then presented with a blue screen. If I then hit the PS button on the controller followed by 'X,' for A moment I see a screen that has the options "Yes" and "No" on it, and then it is just a black screen.
When I go into the recovery menu and select option three "Restore File system," It gives me error 8001002B. I took the original 80GB hard drive out and did a full format as exFAT in Windows 7.
I do not have a solid yellow light at any time. This all started occurring after going from the otherOS firmware to stock 3.55. When it was in the process of flashing to OFW 3.55 it gave me a HDD error I believe.
