Do i need a Harddrive to check the console?

Hi, i've just bought a second hand console, and the Hard drive is missing (on purpose) i know i can buy 1 of these, but my question is: Can i check the console is working (ie start up), without it having 1?

Many thanks in advance.

You can start it up without a hard drive attached, if you want to install or save games you will need a hard drive or memory unit.
