I found the solution so this response is for others who run into this issue.
It turns out that the Apple tv is able to tell when the hard drive has been replaced. The fix is not the easiest thing in the world to pull off, but shouldn't be a problem if you have already been messing the with the hard drive.
The fix that worked was to replace the factory restore partition of the Apple tv with the 2.3 firmware and then run a factory restore. It seems that the hardware check only runs while in upgrade and not restore mode.
