Thread: Can't load Homebrew Installer Beta 8 DVD

    Can't load Homebrew Installer Beta 8 DVD


    Can anyone help me..

    I have a PAL wii with 3.1E firmware and a wiikey2 chip (with updated 1.2 firmware)

    I want to install the homebrew channel, so i downloaded the PAL version of homebrew installer beta 8. I burnt the installer.iso image using image burn at 4x on discs that i have been using to successfully play backups.

    The disc subsequently loads when i go to the disc channel, but only loads to a black screen. I click start, and then i get a full black screen and nothing happens. I tried a different DVD and got the error saying cannot read disc see operations manual.

    Does anyone know what is going on? I can't understand why it wont let me install the homebrew channel, it should be simple..

    only if u're at 3.1/3.2, it should be simple !
    u got a bad burn. use ImgBurn, speed at 2X, patience,.... bingo.

    did u enable the block-update of wiikey2 ? might it be a barrier to let u go?

    Giving it a go now burning at 2x.... I only have the wiikey2 block update set to EUR/PAL not all.

    try not to activate any wiikey2-blocks function when running the hbcbeta8.
    mind ?
    come back and make a shout, for any finding.

    So i burnt the installer.iso at 2x, turned off all wiikey2 update blocks and put it in. Once again the disc loaded, but as soon as i hit start, black screen (like an 002 error i get with some NTSC games).... I have no idea why this isnt working

    ensure the "region" of hbc beta8 iso?

    Yeah i checked it with wiu and its definately region 2 PAL, only prob that it comes up with is the filesize is wrong, but the iso is only 1.5 gb. Ive even redownloaded it and tried that but no luck.

    what means filesize is wrong ?
    would u mind to click into Dogeggs 's thread and get into his signature. he's provided a library 4u guys. am not sure if there's the right iso for u.

    just WIU likes the patched games to be 4.5 gb, but the installer iso is 1.5... however this shouldnt make a difference as the wiikey2 disc updater i use is only about the same size.

    as far as i can remember, the hbc installer iso dvd shown less burnt content, comparing to game iso, ( look at the burnt lines)......1.5GB might be .

    Oop.....dummmm..... i forgot to ask u : did u play Zelda-Twilight-Princess b4 ?
