    I still haven't got it to work...

    My list:
    - MacBook Intel Core 2 Duo Install Disk
    - I used Smultron to edit my info.plist
    - I am using the original Apple TV harddrive in a USB enclosure with a USB Y-cable (a USB-cable, two USB 2.0 connectors to USB-mini for the HDD)

    hi again,

    ptaylor874 you're right.

    thanks to semthex and Turbo...they did a great job.

    I can report some of my experiences now. after booting the first time from the usb drive it did not work again.

    therefore I reset the index of the boot partition to its original value.

    then I repeated the 2nd step of clean up:

    2. Delete /Volumes/YourExternalDisk/System/Library/Extensions.mkext and Extensions.kextcache if they exist

    next I removed the 2nd index again and I set the ATV's value.

    now the boot procedure worked fine!
    I don't know why....maybe ATV copies some files to the external drive!??

    however.....right now I'm connected via ssh to activate the sshd on ATV!
    thx,
    pheno

    I think I fixed it.

    First I reversed the partitioning step to end up with a partition that my MacBook would recognize. Next, I copied the Info.plist from my MacBook Pro's /System/Library/Extensions/AppleFileSystemDrive.kext and then patched it in vi. Following this, my MBP would still boot the drive (in the past, it got the same screen my aTV did). I'm going to change the partition type and give it a go on the aTV. This is looking good.

    SO BASICALLY: Don't use TextEdit.

    Sounds promising! How did you reverse the partitioning step?

    (And what's vi?)

    Reversing the partitioning steps:
    (first: disktool -u diskX)

    1. We remove the partition with OSX: gpt remove -i 2 /dev/diskX

    2. Mac OS will remount any remaining partitions. Unmount them:
    disktool -u diskX

    3. Now, we add a new entry to the table.
    gpt add -b START -s SIZE -i 2 -t "48465300-0000-11AA-AA11-00306543ECAC" /dev/diskX

    It worked! vi is a command line text editor. I wouldn't suggest it if you don't know what it is. Use TextWrangler or (from the command line) nano. I would offer a tutorial, but I'm about to leave. My family has been waiting on me for the last 20 minutes.

    Good luck. I hope my info helped.

    Great news!

    So, for people not familiar with command line editors, edit the file in TextWrangler (http://www.barebones.com/products/te...ownload.shtml). It's free.

    The original post has been updated to reflect this.

    YEAH!
    Now we're talkin'!
    It is now working for me too!


    I reversed the partitioning steps, repatched AppleFileSystemDriver with TextWrangler (tnx for the link ptaylor874!), did a blessing again, then it worked!

    Is it just me or is an iso/dmg of the final patched image due for a torrent tracker somewhere? I agree, it's great to follow all the steps and go through lots of trial and error, but my bones are too old (and my wife too nagging) to spend all day on this. Purty pleeease?
