I did as you suggested. It brought me to the main interface at which point I plugged back in my hdd and pointed the loader to my WBFS partition. Now it works, thank you VERY much, but I don't understand why it didn't from the start. How incredibly annoying!
Now I am noticing that all of Tantrics channel forwarders (NES/GBA & WiiMC) lock up my Wii while loading the homebrew emulator/program. The programs work well when loaded from HBC but not from either Tantrics channel auto-installers or from his manually downloaded and installed *.wad files.
Any words of wisdom with that by chance?
Also, I just wanted to say that you're such a huge help here! It's people like you that make WiiHacks what it is. So... thank you!
