Step 1: Use this link to download atvusb-creator and save it on your desktop. Choose the newest version of the atvusb-creator interim solution with SSH/XBMC/Boxee installers for XP/Vista platforms.

Step 2: From your desktop open the file you just downloaded (atv-win-1.0.b11.zip).

Step 3: Now drag the folder atv-win-1.0.b11 to your desktop.

Step 4: When pop-up window shows up asking you would you like to copy a file without encryption select the “Do this for all current items” at the bottom of the window and then click on Yes.

Step 5: If in next step a pop-up window shows up telling that a folder with the same name already exists then select “Do this for all current items” and click Skip button.

Step 6: On your keyboard simultaneously press Windows key and R to open Run window. In the empty field type cmd and click OK.

Step 7: To go directly to the folder you extracted to the desktop, inside Command prompt window type cd Desktop/atv-win-1.0.b11. If you are using another version than I did in this tutorial, just replace the atv-win-1.0.b11 folder name with that folder name.

Step 19: Remove the patchstick from your computer when the patchstick has been successfully created. If you want to turn off your Apple TV just unplug it and connect the patchstick on the back of the Apple TV. To start the patching process just plug the Apple TV back in.

Step 20: On your TV you will notice that Apple logo is replaced by ATV USB Creator icon.

Step 21: If your screen goes black don’t worry, because some Terminal commands will execute for a few minutes.
