Hi everybody, :(

I've made a big mistake and lost the backup of the harddrive of my appleTV take2. I was trying to install MacOSX on it without success and so now I've got a completely empty HDD without chance of recover.

Somebody could help me and tell me how could I recover my AppleTV? The only thing I've got is a copy of the original boot.efi file :unsure:

Thanks to all...

Yes, I do most of the atv-bootloader dev work under vmware fusion. parallels should also work now that USB support is much better than the initial versions.

well i've tried with parallel and everything was ok except that the virtual ubuntu doesn't recognize the usb flash drive... so it must be a parallel problem!!! thanks for the additional info :( i will try with vmware now

The atv-bootloader guides are pretty straight forward but can be difficult if you don't have Linux experience.

Here's a link for restoring under OSX (http://smallnum.blog...om-scratch.html). Remember that you only need to create the four partitions and populate the recovery. The files needed can be pulled from the AppleTV update dgm.
