No, where did you get that?!
You just replace the HDD, download the (right!!) Firmware file, wich should be around 1GiB or so, put that on a USB drive with FAT32 file system in the PS4/UPDATE Folder and call it a day.

 

Though depending on the Internet Connection, you absolutely should backup your stuff!
Well, at least Savegames, Settings, Screenshots/Videos...
