So i'm now able to install rogero on the new hdd, but there are several problems (waiting for the blackscreen to disappear for about 15min, restoring file format takes hours, copying files takes much longer than before..)
What could be the source of these problems? the hdd?
After 1,5h the restore filesystem is on 25%..
More than 3h and still only 34%. i will stop it..
I checked the HHD with a software called Crystal Dsik Info and got the result that there are current pending sectors.. could this explain the problems?
since his HDD is not in "normal" condition i told him to completly wipe down the whole HDD with 0's with CCleaner
if that doesnt work hell organize another HDD
UPDATE: he said to me after he has installed rogero on the new HDD (see
's update) he came to the XMB and installed mM... he wanted to copy a game from a USB-stick to the new HDD... he only got ~1mb/s and canceled the copying task... PS3 directly freezed (no blackscreen) and then there came the restore filesystem action like
another sign for a faulty HDD
UPDATE: VICTORY! wiping the HDD with CCleaners tool actually helped
he could format the HDD and install rog 4.30 v2.05 very fast without problems
XMB and mM works so far will now try if backups are working
