1 Select and download a Linux distribution to download. Your options are Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE and Yellow Dog. Ubuntu and Yellow Dog have better support for PS3 than OpenSUSE and Fedora. Links are provided in the first Resource.
2 Locate the boot loader included with your Linux distribution of choice and rename it to "otheros.bld" so the PS3 recognizes it. Your bootloader is either named "kboot" or "petitboot" followed by a version number.
Create a folder named "PS3" on the CD or Flash drive. Create another folder named "otheros" inside the "PS3" folder. These folder titles are case-sensitive--enter them exactly as they appear here.
4 Save the "bootloader.bld" file in the "otheros" folder. If you are using a CD, burn it now. See the second Resource on how to burn a CD using tools included in Windows.
5 Insert the Flash drive or CD into the PS3.
6 Go to the "Settings" column of the PS3 main menu, select "System Settings," then "Install Other OS." The PS3 then searches for and starts installing the boot loader from the Flash drive or CD.
7 From the "Settings" column again, select "System Settings," then "Default System." Choose "Other OS" from the options listed on the right.
8 Burn the .iso of your Linux distribution of choice to a CD, if you want to boot the PS3 from a CD. If you're using a Flash drive, see the third Resource on how to put a running Linux installation on a Flash drive.
9 Remove any disc already in the PS3 and turn it off.
10 Insert the CD or Flash drive. The Flash drive goes into one of the PS3's USB ports, located on the front face, in the bottom right-hand corner. If you insert a CD, the PS3 automatically turns on.
11 Turn on the PS3, if it hasn't turned itself on already. Select your Linux distribution from the boot loader menu to boot the PS3 from the Flash drive or CD.
to be honest i cant understand what is the problem exactly, but lsn if u r talking about the Disk auto start, then u have to know that it has to do with the latest updates, so if u want your PS3 to auto start your Disk u have to turn it on and wait until it loads and see the PS3 menu after that insert your Disk and it will auto play it, but if u inserted your Disk as soon as you turned your PS3 on IT WILL NOT auto start it. u have to wait man until you see the menu, ok
HI If the light turns yellow then red, this is a overheating issue. let it stand for an hour unplugged to cool.
Now, if the green light doesn't turn yellow before red, this will confirm that the HD(Hard disk), is experiencing some difficulties with the booting process. This will occur if the internal connections are damaged, due to a solder break. In this case, you will need to send the unit to Sony for a repair. Try removing the HD from the unit. after the unit HD is removed for a minute and re-installed, try to power up and initiate a boot. if the unit continues to not boot and flashes the red light after the HD is pulled, this will confirm that the HD is the culprit.
Contact Sony for a repair ticket if the problems persist.
This sounds like your hard drive might be bad. Try pulling the hard drive out of your PS3 then turn it on and see if it will turn on. If the system turns on then i would say your hard drive definitely needs to be replaced.
Boot to the BIOS, turn on Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, Numlock. Then press ALT+E (You should hear one beep) then ALT+F (You should hear one beep) if you have no floppy disk drive, turn off the Floppy Drive and the diskette controller the ALT+B to save and reboot.
