    Wink Problems trying to forward ISOs

    Hello all, I've been working for weeks following the tutorials and guides to soft-mod my Wii and I have to say I've so far been deeply impressed by the quality of work put into both tearing apart the Wii, as well as explaining it to everyone in a very straight-forward manner.

    My main goal right now is to try to get my Wii to boot up to WiiFlow with all my data backed up to a USB hard disk, both WiiWare and backups of Wii Games I have. Hopefully, it will look nice and pretty when finished and I can sift through the available data.

    So far, I've gotten past getting the softmod hacks in just fine, HBC, USBLoader, WiiFlow as well as others are all installed and running good. Wad's run if installed through Wad Manager, but of I don't want it running off the main disk so I tried to use this guide to get everything running from a USB Harddisk http://www.wiihacks.com/other-faq-gu...ers-guide.html

    Ran into some trouble... the Loader.dol just isn't found no matter what. I've done everything I can, searched the site and webs as best I could. Below is the sysCheck if relavent.

    Spoiler



    The questiosn I have are as follows.

    1. I followed the guide best I could, Loader.dol just isn't found, even if I put it directly on the SD. Any ideas what I can do to fix this? Any common problems I may have missed?
    2. After fixing the above problem, I'll need to boot directly TOO WiiFlow on start up, but I just don't know how. Is this even possible?
    3. My Wii, no matter what I cannot connect to my wireless connection. I get error code 51330 every attempt. Through my router I've changed the channels, DMZ'd, opened specific addresses... nothing works. The problem is that I will not be able to download the covers for when I DO get WiiFlow working. It also caused problems updating. Any work arounds for the covers?


    Hope this isn't too much at once, I've tried to follow the guides and do this all on my own, but I have been stuck for a while on these issues and I really need some help. Thanks to anyone willing to assist. I really appreciate the guidance.

    1. Maybe Im missing it, but Im not seeing the loader.dol you are referring to. And actually, that guide is somewhat outdated (sorry emu..lol). You should have a look at THIS GUIDE instead. NAND emulation is now used to accomplish what that guide did.
    2. Yes, booting directly to WiiFlow is possible. Download THIS and put it on the root of your SD card. Launch priiloader, select Load/Install file and install the file you just put on the card. Then go to the settings in priiloader and change Autoboot to Installed File. Then change Return To: Autoboot.
    3. Try deleting all internet connections in your Wii settings. Then make a new one and see if it connects.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I tried the guide you posted, but it doesn't seem to work for WiiWare, and still gives the error message that Loader.dol is can't be found It almost seems that the guy who made that guide didn't really consider the step of how to use WiiWare, or get it working? I must be misunderstanding...

    Just noticed 6 stubs on the check sys above... is that bad?

    What is loader.dol for? What are you talking about? And yes it does work for wiiware. I think you are misunderstanding quite a bit

    I don't know, I assume it is to load the WiiWare game I guess. It's an error message I get. I must be misunderstanding a lot :/ I thought I did everything perfectly accurate. I put in the wad files, but unless i transform to an ISO from a Wad, it doesn't show, and if I then try to run it... that error appears.

    Could the stubbed files have anything to do with this? I'm not even sure what those are or why they are stubbed to be honest.

    Thank you again for the advice.

    Oh OK I see whats going on. You dont need to use those .iso files anymore. Follow the WiiFlow guide I linked you to in its entirety. Forget about .iso loading. Once you finish that guide you will see how everything is done.

    Thing is... I thought I did. I only added the ISO back after I couldn't fine the wad of the game to run after following the guide. I've looked over it multiple times now, but I just don't see what I'm missing Sorry for seeming so clueless.

    Did you click the little fishbowl icon that switches between wii games, emulated nand, and real nand?

    i went through that, however it just tells me i don't have any plugins and that I need to select a partition. Only USB2 and SD is available. Neither seem to do anything.

    Update: Seems I cannot select game partition USB1 no matter what... Might be the reason i don't see the wads?

    Update 2: Spent 11 hours fiddling trying to get this working today... exhausted and frustrated. Thanks for the help. Hopefully I can figure out what is going wrong later I just don't know what I didn't do right...

    Usb1 is probably not showing because you have it formatted to wbfs. I would suggest you format the whole drive to a single fat32 partition. Then follow the WiiFlow guide from scratch. Probably not the answer you were looking for, but thats the best course of action from my viewpoint.
