You should check if your PSU is providing enough power to the hard drive. In case the hard drive requires more power, you should either replace it or get a better PSU.

Consult a professional for best results.

Error msg cannot start correct harddrive not found


Your hard drive has died. You must replace it. Get any size SATA 2.5" notebook hard drive replacement and install it. I have seen this issue plenty of times. Usually on the old 40GB systems.

Booting Error Message No Operating System Found


Hi!

Make sure that hard drive is detected in BIOS. If not, there is a problem with the hard drive and any attempt to install OS will be futile since there is no hard drive detected. If this basically means you have a busted hard drive, you may need to replace it then to continue with OS installation.

Thanks.

My Playstation 3 will not start. It keeps coming up with an error message saying, "Cannot start. Correct hard disk is not found." Any ideas why?


Yes, You need to re-format your hard drive via your laptop or purchase a new hard drive.. sometimes they become invalid/corrupt and you need to reset it or put a new one in.. I suggest taking it out and put it back in to see if it was knocked loose if not then you need a new hd! a 60gb ps3 original via eba is 40$

Ps3 Can't start - correct hard disk not found


I do believe that it is a firmware issue and not a hard drive issue. If it where a true hard drive failure, your hard drive would be completely useless. Since this error only happens at start up i believe this is what happens.

1) PS3 starts-up and displays the "wave" and plays the "music"
2) The hard drive spins and the PS3 firmware is looking for the "files" on the hard drive for start-up
3) If the start-up files are not found in a certain amount of time, this message is displayed.

I may be wrong but this is my guess.
