i gonna find those errors and report them here. but first i need to looke for a new tutorial, looks like all i found were either outdated OR just to complicated.
at least i got the emus and other stuff to work tho, its only the programs that require a ios to work, that i cant use. back to you later, gonna check wii.
sad to hear i spendt to much money on my stuff. i was really shocked to when i heard the price but i really wanted this SD card so i just threw my power visa to the dude in the shop, and it didnt burn my visa

( i have tried to do them before but failed at cios installer part)
as i said, im back in a ew hours to report the errors. got work again.
and btw, u were right about the errors u made in ur post, thats some stuff ive already seen
the ''bricking'' thing sounds pretty scary. Is there any way to backup the whole wii and recover it from a sdcard with some boot files if something goes wrong?
oh, now i think i remember an error, think it was 41000 or 4100 something like that (when installing Usblauncher) gonna check.

It just means unmodified Wii, running all standard software. Anything you buy from the shops at retail should be a virgin Wii.
It can be scary but you need not worry too much. Follow the tutorials you choose and you should not have any problems.

The error you get trying to install USB Loader is probably because you have no vunerable IOS on your system and therefore it is my belief that you need to install cIOS on your system so you can do what you want. Have a look at Dogeggs tutorial here. You do not need to downgrade at the end.
ITS DONE! and its WORKING
I did follow the tutorial and now i could install everything without gettin errors.
only thing that bugged me was that my external harddrive had 1 ntfs partition wich was full, and theres so much stuff on it that i cant back it up somewhere for a format =(
so i gotta burn those games to a dvd instead then.
thnx for all help. you have really been helpful indeed.
i wish i keep lookin for new posts in this thread as i will report as soon as somehting goes wrong and i need help, so i dont have to make a new thread.
Installed Gamma loader, burnt an iso, tried to run it, and worked like a charm.
so mostly everything are sorted out now.
its just that i woule like to use my SD card as main memory for the wii, as the integrated wii memory are very small.
theres almost no blocks at all, and i dont even got much saved on my wii at all.
so how can i do this?
Listen, i tried to install 4 wads, all 4 wads automaticly got installed to wii memory (no i didnt get any options during installation to install into my SD)
this takes so much space on my wii, so i tried to ''copy'' the files over to the sd using the buildt in manager in the wii.
i could copy them with no problem, but when i did so, the channel went away from my wii memory as i wanted, but did not go into the sd (i think) because the channel at my browser was gone after, and had to reinstall the wad (wich again applied it to the wii system memory)
if i just could get all my wads installed into the SD (also loading from SD and running the channel from the SD)
