    Just being lazy I used Duperduper (free trial version) and have now managed to 'burn' my usb harddisk
    Did not want to DD on this rig as it is my production macbook, don't want to have it DDing an img for a couple of hours (at least this is what it took me to upgrade my ATV harddisk)

    Anyway, the image boots up fine on my macbook now but when I connect the HD to my ATV the ATV takes some extra time booting up and some additional screen flickering, but in the end it boots up the internal drive

    Any tips to check on before I try to disable/unplug the internal drive (drastic measures I know)


    By the way, don't know if it was mentioned somewhere, the password for the ATV OSX image is appletv
    Ciao,
    Frans

    Viresfde,
    There are a couple of options. Just checking you know, but when you boot off a usb drive, you need to do some mods in console before to the hdd. This is in the guide.
    If you plug the drive directly into the atv, it does not require this.

    On a side note, i'm not sure why it's taking so long. I find that disk utility can push a 5gb dmg onto my USB drive in about 30-40 minutes. I've got an old G5 too!
    Additionally, I don't think it matters what the target drive's called or what the partition is called as the DMG changes it. mine is called ATVOSX and works fine.

    One thing I would do thou is boot up with Jon's image, install all the apple updates and then make a new DMG with disk utility. This way, you have a backup with the current updates if anything goes sour.

    Booting now!
    Needed to add some prep steps to my HD following instructions found in:
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/f98/634.htm

    What I needed to add/do was:

    Change Partition Type
    NOTE: Once you do this, you can't mount the disk on your Intel Mac anymore without reversing the change. If you mess up here, you'll need to start over.
    1. Open Disk Utility
    2. Select the external disk from the left pane. Right click and select "Information"
    3. Take note of the "Disk Indentifier". In my case, it is "disk3". For safety reasons, the rest of this guide is written with "diskX". Replace the X with the number of your drive.
    4. From Terminal:
    gpt -r show /dev/diskX
    5. You'll get something similar to this back:
    PHP Code:


    ETC ETC until and including step 11

    Default screen size?

    I've installed your image to the internal hdd, it works correctly, a bit slow btw...

    I've a problem with my sony tv here.
    Any screen resolution I select, the top menu bar, and the bottom of the dock (where it shows the running programs) is missing.

    Any way to adjust screen size (not the resolution)?
    Tnx

    That's a common problem on many tvs. Look into the display settings, perhaps there you'll find a "overscan" setting.

    This cannot be solved if you use component cables to connect to your TV - component output just allows TV resolutions, eg 720p.
