Now it appeared that restoring back to the original AppleTV OS wasn’t all that simple – since I literally wiped the entire disk – until I bumped into v1.1 of StmLabs’ Windows Installer UI.

UPDATE: There is an easier method available in this article “Restore AppleTV OS after erasing disk (Offline Method)“.
