No Longer Booting

After hooking up the drive to a PowerPC based mac, the AppleTV can no longer boot (just get a flashing appleTV logo with a question mark over it). IF anyone has any ideas, or a solution to at least restore the drive, please post here. I think what happens is the disk is set to no longer be bootable. Does anyone know a command line command to set a partition to bootable?
