    Sorry Davilla.

    I am in my own little world of ATV hell.

    I have followed you steps on you bootloader Wiki and have copied the staging files over to the new hard drive. I start the ATV it boots into the Linux screen and that is it. I'm just left with a prompt. I can't seem to get the ATV into any form of recovery mode. Should it be starting into an apple screen or linux screen.

    Thanks
    Matt

    Ok I worked out that I wasn't mounting the correct partition of my usb stick.
    it was meant to be /dev/sbd3 not sbd2 so it wasn't getting the stuff from the staging build.

    No more linux prompt! but now I am getting an apple logo with a flash of and ATV then ATV? then it sits on the apple logo forever when the light starts flashing amber and grey.

    Here is the contents of the ATV drive
    penbuntu login: root
    Password:
    # mkdir dst
    # mount -t hfsplus -o rw,force /dev/sda2 dst
    # cd dst
    # ls -l
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 45590 Feb 17 2007 BootLogo.png
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 177099888 Apr 13 2008 OS.dmg
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 298800 Apr 8 2008 boot.efi
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 604 Apr 29 06:46 com.apple.Boot.plist
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 532 Apr 8 2008 com.apple.Boot.plist~
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 7138931 Apr 8 2008 mach_kernel.prelink


    I also printed out the drive partitions as you asked on another forum.

    # parted -s /dev/sda unit s print
    Model: ATA SAMSUNG MP0603H (scsi)
    Disk /dev/sda: 117304992s
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
    Partition Table: gpt

    Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
    1 40s 69671s 69632s fat32 primary boot
    2 69672s 888823s 819152s hfs+ primary
    3 888824s 2732015s 1843192s hfs+ primary
    4 2732016s 77878015s 75146000s hfs+ primary

    Thanks

    from the atv-bootloader page:

    Model: FUJITSU K00FT7125M1W (scsi)
    Disk /dev/sda: 78140160s
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
    Partition Table: gpt

    Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
    1 40s 69671s 69632s fat32 EFI boot
    2 69672s 888823s 819152s hfs+ Recovery atvrecv
    3 888824s 2732015s 1843192s hfs+ OSBoot
    4 2732016s 77878015s 75146000s hfs+ Media

    See that they have names for the partitions and the second partition is "atvrecv", both are very important.

    # make file systems for the four partitions
    mkfs.msdos -F 32 -n EFI /dev/sda1
    mkfs.hfsplus -v Recovery /dev/sda2
    mkfs.hfsplus -J -v OSBoot /dev/sda3
    mkfs.hfsplus -J -v Media /dev/sda4
    This gives the partitions "names".

    # create the GPT format
    parted -s /dev/sda mklabel gpt

    # 1-EFI
    parted -s /dev/sda mkpart primary fat32 40s 69671s
    parted -s /dev/sda set 1 boot on

    # 2-Recovery
    parted -s /dev/sda mkpart primary HFS 69672s 888823s
    parted -s /dev/sda set 2 atvrecv on

    # 3-OSBoot
    parted -s /dev/sda mkpart primary HFS 888824s 2732015s

    # 4-Media
    parted -s /dev/sda mkpart primary HFS 2732016s 77878015s
    "parted -s /dev/sda set 2 atvrecv on" sets the GUID format to "Recovery". This must be done.

    Ok so I have followed the wiki again. This time did it in ubuntu.

    this is the drive list

    bigfella@bigfella-laptop:/$ sudo parted -s /dev/sdb unit s print
    Model: SAMSUNG MP0603H (scsi)
    Disk /dev/sdb: 117304992s
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
    Partition Table: gpt

    Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
    1 40s 69671s 69632s fat32 primary boot
    2 69672s 888823s 819152s hfs+ primary atvrecv
    3 888824s 2732015s 1843192s hfs+ primary
    4 2732016s 77878015s 75146000s hfs+ primary

    Still no names BUT they mount within ubuntu with the correct names on the desktop.

    Confused!

    I'm starting to wonder if it is a hardware problem?

    Any Idea?

    it's not a hardware problem, you have just not satisfied the appletv EFI firmware with enough bits to boot yet.

    post the contents of "com.apple.Boot.plist" and get rid of com.apple.Boot.plist~.

    What do you think about the partition names?


    com.apple.Boot.plist

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>Background Color</key>
    <integer>0</integer>
    <key>Boot Fail Logo</key>
    <string></string>
    <key>Boot Logo</key>
    <string>BootLogo.png</string>
    <key>Kernel</key>
    <string>mach_kernel</string>
    <key>Kernel Cache</key>
    <string>mach_kernel.prelink</string>
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string>rp=file:///OS.dmg</string>

    </dict>
    </plist>

    com.apple.Boot.plist looks fine.

    if ubuntu shows the correct names on the desktop, that's fine.

    atv-bootloader shows

    Code:
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root     45590 Feb 16  2007 BootLogo.png
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 root   80 207475830 Mar 15  2007 OS.dmg
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root    298800 Feb 16  2007 boot.efi
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root   80       520 Mar 15  2007 com.apple.Boot.plist
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root   6306364 Mar 15  2007 mach_kernel.prelink
    yours shows

    Code:
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 45590 Feb 17 2007 BootLogo.png
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 177099888 Apr 13 2008 OS.dmg
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 298800 Apr 8 2008 boot.efi
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 604 Apr 29 06:46 com.apple.Boot.plist
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 532 Apr 8 2008 com.apple.Boot.plist~
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 99 99 7138931 Apr 8 2008 mach_kernel.prelink
    given "root" is "0", what do you see different about these two besides the dates and file sizes ?

    And it is old that com.apple.Boot.plist has a different byte size than the one listed at atv-bootloader.
