    Default Problem with Drive Upgrade

    I've just bought a new Apple TV and have upgraded the drive to 250GB.

    I cloned the original 40Gb drive as I have done before without problems.

    The new 250GB drive boots ok but won't Factory Restore.

    The original 40Gb drive works fine.

    Has any one seen this problem before ?

    Thanks

    Mancman

    Did you copy over the restore partition?
    If I recall correctly, you should have 4 partitions copied over. I don't know how you did the actual copying, I prefer using DD command.

    Ciao,

    I suggest reading and understanding this page;

    ATVBackup - atv-bootloader - Google Code

    see the section "Opps I did not make a backup"

    it details everything the appletv needs to boot and you don't need to use "dd".
