Ps3 Won't Boot with Hdd inserted

Whilst attempting to update my Ps3 to the latest firmware ,the update process was interrupted and the console went into an update loop. Following several online recommendations I formatted the Ps3 hard drive using my PC and also created a USB stick with the update firmware. My problem now is that the ps3 doesn't boot with the hdd inserted and as soon as I try to switch it on it powers on briefly before switching off with a flashing red light. When I remove the hdd the system powers up normally until it gives the error that appropriate storage has not been found. I have tested the hdd on the PC and I have been able to transfer files to and from it without a problem so am not sure that it has failed. Please assist.

That's definitely in the pipeline - was just hoping to get a solution that doesn't require me to spend anything upfront :)
