    Hello,

    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?
