I created the usb drive and ran the install successfully on the apple tv. It said at the lower left corner something like: “installation complete, reboot appletv…” or something to that effect.
AFter that, the apple tv reboots but it is the same screen as always. There is no option to run smart installer under settings or anywhere else.
Any ideas? I have the latest software on the apple tv and created teh patchstick on mac snow leopard
