I have been working on a PS4 that I bought from eBay. It did not have a hard drive, so I installed one and initialized it manually.
When I boot into safe mode everything works find. I am able to use the joysticks, navigation buttons and the PS button with no troubles.
However, when I boot into run mode, the PS button will not work to move on from the first blue screen that tells me to use a controller with USB then press the PS button.
I have tried rebuilding the database and just about everything I can do in Safe Mode, the reboot to run mode, still I cannot move beyond the blue screen prompting me to press the PS button.
Since it works fine in safe mode, I do not believe it is a problem with my controller, USB or cables.
Any idea what could be the problem and what the fix is?
