    Hi, (Sorry for my english)
    Finally my ATV boot OSX but... after the white screen with Apple logo I got a black screen (external HD continue to work for a while). My ATV is connected via HDMI.
    I tried to ssh to my ATV but seems that my wi-fi don't find it... (use a static IP?)
    Any suggestion?

    I'm having the same black screen after the apple logo as the poster above. I've been through the setup at least 10 times using DxQ's files and moding my own files per this thread and turbo's website. No luck. Anyone have any ideas?

    As for the poster above try sudo disktool -u /dev/diskX where X is the number of the disk.

    Try unplugging HDMI, waiting 15 seconds, and plugging it back in. If this doesnt work (it depends on the files you're using), your install most likely will not support HDMI.

    I solve the "blackscreen problem". Simply delete the Nvidia kexts (all begining with NVD, there are 5) from /Volumes/YourExternalDisk/System/Library/Extensions
    Now my problem is that after the boot, my osx don't get ip (I have a wifi with dhcp enabled, AppleTV Backrow normally get ip, so the wifi works). Any suggestion?

    Thanks guys. HDMI was the problem. I must have read DxQ's release notes 100 times and missed that fact. I should also say thank you for putting the time in to make the install this easy.

    I'm trying to use my ATV as an home automation controller. On that front I don't seem to be able to install any packaged software. The installer runs but when you try to select a target nothing is listed. Mounting the intial dmg file also fails. I haven't messed with this to much so I'll keep plugging away.

    Regarding the step of making Tiger bootable off an external USB drive: can anyone recommend a way to make a minimal OS X installation, similar to what TinyXP does with Windows?

    It's because you didn't follow the guide. You have to unmount the disk again:
    disktool -u diskX

    I got this to work off a 4GB thumb drive. I started with a minimum install of 10.4.5 - no fonts, printer drivers, languages, and only CPU Helper Files checked under Bundled Software. I then removed any apps that weren't needed such as Mail, Chess, iChat etc. I also deleted any desktop pictures and screensavers that I wasn't using. I found that without this step I got a 'Your startup disk is almost full" warning when doing the 10.4.8 combo update. The drive ended up with about 1.2 GB free space. Very slow to boot up however. But I can confirm that it can be done.

    Has anyone noticed that OSX loose time at a pretty fast rate? I've worked around this by running a script to update it every few mins.
