Okay it appears to be running fine of CFG loader, so it I guess it's a problem with r1198 of USB Loader GX. I really like the Dios Mios support that the r1198 offers, I wonder what's causing the issue with Skyward Sword.
I'm running it off of a Fat32 partition. I don't know if that is making a difference for USB Loader GX. I used to run it of wbfs partition, but I got rid of that partition. Should I try reinstalling r1198?
I installed CIOS 223 5.1 and Skyward Sword now loads but then goes to black screen when it transitions to a new sceen.
Try re-installing that loader or update that loader to the new ones, look to the Dios Mios Guide and it will have the link to it.

Thought I'd give an update on this whole situation to let you know what I've found. If I follow the softmod any wii guide, and do a fresh install of USB Loader GX 3.0 (current official release) Skyward Sword works without any problem. However if I install Dios Mios and update USB Loader to rev 1198 or above to get gamecube support, then Skyward Sword, almost never makes it past the wiimote calibration screens and when it does it freezes indefinitely on the first screen transition once the game starts, forcing me to manually shut down the Wii.
Again if I rerun the soft mod packages which remove Dios Mios and I install the official release of USB Loader GX, Skyward Sword works again no problem. Another bit of info is that rev 1198 or higher still seem to work with Skyward Sword until I install Dios Mios support. Not sure why Dios Mios would lead to this issue with Skyward Sword, but I've also noticed that it occurs occasionally in the middle of some other wii games as well. Again I only have these problems when Dios Mios is installed.
