Problems creating USB filesystem?
Not sure if anyone has run into this problem, but I'm having a lot of problems trying to create an initial bootable filesystem for the ATV on a USB drive.
I've tried using Disk Utility, and it says 'Invalid Argument' when I try to use the GUID partition format. Tried on both my MacBook and a PPC Mac Mini, using a generic 2GB USB flash drive (CBM Flash Disk Media) and a Gen2 iPod Shuffle.
# diskutil eraseDisk HFS+ Test GPTFormat /dev/disk1
Started erase on disk disk1
Creating Partition Map
error writing partition map: Invalid argument (22)
Partitioning encountered error Invalid argument (22) on disk disk1
Anyone had this problem?
Just to update this post for the archives, I couldn't get the gui Disk Utility or diskutil to automatically create a GUID/GPT partition on my USB drive.
Not sure what is going on there, but gpt works fine.
... did the trick.
# gpt destroy /dev/disk2
# gpt create /dev/disk2
# gpt add -t hfs -b 10 -s 64000 /dev/disk2
