Ok so I traded my xbox 360 for a ps3 and went and got Gran Turismo 5 and and when I put it in it asked me to create the 2200mb partition and then it starts and then gives me a 8001002B error and when I leave that screen a corrupt file pops up under the gt5 game logo on the game menu went thru 2 game new unopened still nothing went to staples picked up a 320 hard drive put it in formatted it and still the same thing went and got a another game last night still the same thing. I am at a loss I have went into safe mode to option 3 says there is a corrupt file and its restoring it everytime I just don't know what else to do I don't have the extra cash to send it playstation that's why I am here trying to go it with some help.
Okay so i had the same problem and looked every where on the internet and found nothing, even called sony but no luck there. Did all the usal thing to try and get it past 2%. Runing it in safe mode, formatted the drive, reinstalled the os, and took the hole ps3 apart and cleaned everthing, still nothing worked. It would always freeze on the partition loading part.
Now dont ask me why, but for some resaone i tryed it one final time before i went to bed and turned off the tv while it started to load. In the morning it was all done full working!?!
**So i would try it with the tv off right after you start to partition the drive**
Worked for me twice so far?
Best of luck.
