Your PS4 will take a few minutes to search for the update file, and then it should tell you there’s a system update available. The PS4 will take a few seconds to copy the update file from the flash drive. When it’s finished, the PS4 will restart again, and you should be running the newest version. When that’s done, click the “Update” button to restart the system and install the update. , you are ready to boot up your PS4 and update the Firmware that will get the new drive working.Firmware sounds like a scary word if you are new to replacing hardware but its just as easy as replacing the hard drive.Once the update is finished, you can remount the drive.
When the system turns on, connect a Dual Shock controller over USB, and then press the PS button.
When the Safe Mode menu loads, select “Update System Software” to launch the update menu.
On the next screen, choose the “Update from USB Storage Device” option.
Again, this is a time when you’ll want to manually install an update.
The good news is that manual installation is a breeze.
