    Red Face simple ps3 hdd question

    what does YOUR ps3 do when you turn it on without the HD in it? mine flashes yellow and shuts right off. i thought you had a menu or something is this normal because idk whats wrong the hard drive or system?

    what does it do normally without a hd in it?

    When I turned on my PS3 console with the its hdd bay empty, it says the following:

    "Cannot start. The correct hard disk was not found." Along with the default animated wavy background.

    It doesn't give you any options by controller. You basically have to power the system off. Mine was a 60 GB PS3 model. Maybe the other ps3 models react differently with no hdd in the system?
