    Default 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.

    Code:
    # 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
    #
    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.

    Anyone had this problem?

    Default

    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.

    Something like-

    Code:
    # gpt destroy /dev/disk2
    # gpt create /dev/disk2
    # gpt add -t hfs -b 10 -s 64000 /dev/disk2
    ...
    ... did the trick.
