    Is there a HDD that is recommend because i have two wii's 4.2 and 4.1 i need one HDD to work with both
    no idea, never heard of a hdd working on one sysmenu but not on the other, but if it is listed as not working it has at least issues, like you experience right now, compare syschecks and app versions on both wiis/SD cards. kind of getting off topic to the guide though, maybe go to the usb guide you are following.

    loading what where? reformat using the sd formatter tool put apps back on. or are you still at the nand backup? reformart, try again, use a SD card.

    We loaded up all the emulators and all the roms would load and play. But when we would try and quit back to system menu, I believe a "DSI EXCEPTION ERROR" occurred and would freeze up the wii with a black background and white text.
    My question is this, did we screw up the first chapter or do we need to go further and complete all chapters? Thanks in advance.
    emulators still tend to be buggy, you can re-check the priiloader settings, find "return to" in the settings and set to sysmenu or file if you installed the hbc forwarder/or similar.

    format your sd card before extracting the content of the pack. or manually delete the folder sd:\private\wii\titles\atkn
    you still have bannerbomb flying around on your card. retry

    I have read through the linked out guide for formating the hdd and the file system choices but,...
    Considering I don't expect to use this drive for anything else but the wii games and I want the best stability with game playback etc should I still go for the old WBFS format (perhaps with a small Fat32 partition for applications but I dont mind sticking with an sd card for that).
    Any Games I add to the hdd will be done via the wii itself.
    From reading through many pages on using a hdd for this i get the impression that people have more consistent success with WBFS.

    Also, if i follow this guide to the letter (as I would), and I choose WBFS over FAT32 will I need to change booting options in CFG accordingly or does the format not matter given the way this guide is set out and all the cIOS etc I will have at the end of it.
    Well I think that FAT32 is just as stable and I have had nothing but success using it. When you say things like this...

    (perhaps with a small Fat32 partition for applications but I dont mind sticking with an sd card for that).
    That should be a clear indication to go with FAT32. That way you don't have to format it again later if you change your mind and want to use FAT32 for something (emulation, WiiMC videos, just as a backup storage option for PC files if you ever need it)....no sense in wasting the WBFS space and only being able to use it for Wii games.

    Just my opinion based on my experience with FAT32. As far as reliability and game playback WBFS is no better then FAT32....actually to be quite honest I can't think of a single reason why WBFS would be preferred over FAT32.

    Any Games I add to the hdd will be done via the wii itself.
    No problems there, Insert disc, rip with Cfg loader...done.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Thank you Krank,

    I will take your advice and go Fat32 I reckon.
    Would you use windows or another tool?

    I would follow the guide in my signature. Use the main formatting option unless you are on Win7 64 bit.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Please, is it possible to follow this guide while the wii is offline? How would I do that? I don't have internet access to do it the way the guide currently is, but I do already have bootmii, the homebrew channel, gecko and neogamma installed, but just no new cioses or IOSes apart from what came with the wii. I have a 4.2 wii. Much thanks in advance.

    Yes...the only part of this guide that is online is the update to 4.1 step which you don't need to do (but if you wanted to do it....downgrade to 4.1 in your case...there is an option for offline).

    You can stay at 4.2 though. Everything else is offline.

    Hello all I am a newbie trying to learn the ropes.
    I posted this in another thread and was told that I should post it here if I needed assistance. I just cut and pasted the previous thread here.

    I am having issues with the WAD installs. Basically I am at 4.3u and am trying to follow Mauifrog's sofmod instructions but I am having issues. I currently have homebrew installed but want to use a usbloader but I can't since I am at 4.3. I was able to use the indiana pwns to launch the install but when I try and use bootmii to load the wadinstall i only get a black screen that continues scrolling and up and down in a endless cycle. I tried searching for freezing issue and black screen but no success. I have tried to launch the indiana pwns exploit again (via Hackmii_0.8_IP_SS_BB2) with no success. It just stays at the hackmii banner (left it for a 1/2 hour) with no option to press one to install homebrew and bootmii. I also tried NV-IOS-FIX-TP-SS-IP-VAH but it never got ot the hackmii banner bit just froze after running the exploit and never getting to the banner. Any help would be appreciated. Just an FYI SD card is 2 GB formatted FAT32 and wii connect is turned off.

    In January, I have done my wii following the 4.2u guide. Now I have not dabled in wiis again since then, but my friend wants me to do his wii. I think he maybe have 3.x or 4.0.

    In your guide it says to upgrade or downgrade to 4.1. Do I really need to go online to upgrade / downgrade to 4.1? I don't know which version is the newest but if I go online, won't it ask me to automatically upgrade to the newest version (maybe 4.3 I don't know)?

    Is there a way to do this not online? I just want to make sure I don't brick his wii.

    Thanks.
