The PS3 just wants to update the old hard drive to 4.31. Once you boot the PS3 with 4.31, it will never run an earlier System version again, on any drive. If you install a drive that the PS3 formatted earlier, it will insist on updating it to at least the highest System version that it has run, before it will boot from the old drive. If the PS3 didn't say anything about formatting the drive, then it won't.

Thank you very much. I didn't want to go past the "plug storage media with 4.31" screen just because I don't want to mess up anything lol.
Now I'm having a bit of another problem.
I'm on the "preparing to update" screen and it has been sitting at 99% for about 5 minutes now. It says do not turn off system so I'm a bit hesitant to do that but at the same time nothing is happening... What should I do?
i'd still wait a while just to be safe.
