    Unhappy Unable to Apply Update or Restore After Re-Image

    Today I backed up my OS.dmg and efi.dmg. The HD was a new HD. So I created four partitions on it. I created four partitions: EFI (200m), Recovery (400m), OSBoot (900m), Media (rest of the disk). I restored the OS.dmg to OSBoot and EFI.dmg to EFI. When I boot the AppleTV it boots fine. It functions well and is running v.1.1. However, when I attempt to update the firmware, the Mac downloads the files, ask to upgrade, and then goes back to the options screen. No upgrade performed. If I select factory restore I get a similiar behavior.

    If I attempt the factory restore by holding the - and menu the Apple TV reboots and comes back with an image of an Apple TV and a question mark. I have to cut the power and then plug it back in to bring it back up.

    Does anyone know of what could possibly prevent the update or restore? If so, is there is a fix?

    So you did osboot and efi but you didnt image anything to the recovery partition? thats your problem right there! imaging over efi and recovery is much more important than imaging osboot. if you have an image of recovery you could restore it over while booted to osboot. you wont be able to do any updates without a working recovery because it boots into recovery mode when it does updates.
