If the drive you installed into ps3 was already formatted to any other filesystem, then you need to completely format it first (and I mean full format, which will take a long time, ntfs file system will do just fine, but maybe I am mistaken). After you formatted your new drive and installed it into your ps3, boot into recovery mode (you can learn how to access it here https://www.semperthree.com/ps3recoverymenu.html ) and format your hdd again (restore ps3 system). Then download 3.55 OFW, put it on a usb flash drive (rename to PS3UPDAT.PUP and place it into \PS3\UPDATE\ folder on you usb drive), insert this usb drive into your ps3 and start update. If you did everything correctly it will sucesfully update and boot to 3.55 OFW. Then download any cfw of your choice and rename to PS3UPDAT.PUP, and put it into \PS3\UPDATE\ folder on you usb drive, replacing ofw file, put this usb drive into ps3 and update from system settings (from usb of course, not from the internet).
