Smart Installer Error - Install Partial or Failed

I have been getting the following error while running Smart Installer
I am tying to connect a USB HD with no success.

I did a reset and re-flashed. I get the same error. Any ideas?

Maybe try to restore to factory again, and start over with a fresh aTVFlash USB stick?

Remeber to manually remove the partitions on the USB stick before reusing it, since it will not work if you do not!

The first error however seems to be ok (I got it also), but the second one (XML parser error) is not!

Below is my full log for a comparison, had to redo mine last night after the upgrade from 3.0.1 to 3.0.2 went to bonkers!

Guide for redoing the install is here: http://forum.atvflash.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=2629&p=11098#p11098

Thanks for the response. I really appreciate the help.

I spent most of the day sifting for clues in this forum. My original post was lacking in detail. Here are some of the procedures I tried. Whatever I try I get the same error when running smart installer.

  1. Reset to factory / Created new aTV Flash USB flash - did this 5 or 6 times
    I allowed smart installer to download the dmg. I also downloaded it manually and moved it to atv with Cyberduck.
    http://forum.atvflash.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=907&start=0&hilit=parser

  2. Tried atvusb-creator after another reset to factory - the smart installer had the same error. - did this 2 times

Have you tried re-downloading aTVFlash from the webpage and recreated the USB stick (again, remember to remove partitions totally before redoing the USB stick)?

The file might somehow be corrupt, and a re-download should fix it.

Also, if it does not work, try using a different USB stick, it might be an issue there also…

Success! USB HD now working.

I downloaded MacOSXUpdCombo10.4.9Intel.dmg from Apple and moved it to the documents folder using Cyberduck. I ran smart install and it worked!

I did the same thing earlier, but it did not work.

Thanks for the help.

I seem to be having same issue with this…is there any updated MacOSXUpdCombo10.4.9Intel.dmg file or?  anyone else having these issue?

 

 

My documents folder already had this file in there…did u just overwrite a new one into the folder ?
