I had the same problem but its not really stuck, it just takes a long time, maybe 5-10 minutes to get past 17%.

Hawx 2 is freezing at 17% while installing the game data. Anything I can do to get it to push past 17% and finish installing?

Make sure your PS3 has enough disk space and the wifi signal is uniterrupted.
Deleting some saved games that you never use is one thing to free disk space.

New Hawx 2 for ps3 freezes at 17% load. But, all other games play, as well as blu-rays. Exchanged disc for a new one, but still having same problem~

You may have an issue with your laser, Each game has multiple layers, Your ps3 Blu-Ray Lens may be dirty or starting to weaken and not able to access all layers of a disc,

That is also a common issue on the older fat ps3 systems,

My suggestion is try using a dvd drive cleaner, Usually picked up at staples or walmart for less then ten dollars, It looks like a dvd but has soft bristles on the bottom that clean off the lens.

Xbox 360 dvd drive gets stuck

Try using a lens cleaning disc.  Three years of use means there's some dust in the drive.  As for the tray getting stuck it sounds like a mechanical fault from the manufacturer.  If I had bought that console it would have been returned with in the week.  One way to get around some of these issues is to update to the "New Xbox Experience" instead of the blades system.  This allows you to fully install games to the hardrive.  The disc still needs to be in the drive to prove you own the game but after its referenced the disc the first time, all the game data is pulled from the hardrive.

This problem usually occurs when your lens has a problem, try cleaning your lens (Excluding for PS2 Slim), if the problem still occurs try checking your lens, if its broken all your need to do is to replace it.

this problem is usually because of the Lens.
