Thanks for the help on the smg2 thread. Your advice was spot on. Changed my HD and all games working 100%

No, not even your pal burned games. Many of the USB loaders will allow you to dump directly to the hdd. There is a guide here somewhere to help you set up your hdd for this. You can always use the search, but here is what you should do. http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...g-playing.html

However, if you are on a lower system menu you can just install a cIOS (by looking at the Legend of Zelda guide on this site) which will trick the system into thinking that you are on 4.3.
Hope this answered your question - but don't worry too much as many games do not require specific cIOSs to run.

I want to clear up a few things about the above post, as it seems there is a bit of confusion. First off, IOS, cIOS, and System Menu Version are all entirely different things independent of each other, and there is no such thing as "tricking" the Wii into thinking it is on a different System Menu version.
All games require different IOS to run (if playing from original disc). In Zelda, this is IOS56. When doing an official update from disc, the big N bundles a new system menu version along with the needed IOS. A System Menu update is never actually required to play, only the IOS that the game runs on is. This is why you should always use Priiloader to "block disc update check", and install the needed IOS separately.
When loading backups, your loaders are using cIOS (custom IOS). In the case of Zelda, you need a cIOS built using IOS56 (commonly referred to as a base of 56, i.e 249). If you followed the Softmod ANY Wii guide, you already have all the needed cIOS.
Just an FYI, Wii drives made after mid 2009 will not play backup discs, which is why the black Wii can USB load only. Also, since black Wii consoles are factory shipped with 4.3, they already have all the needed IOS (that bundling thing I mentioned earlier).
I hope this clears up some of the confusion...
