    usb loader gx only boots games once

    basically ive been trying to figure this out for two days nonstop now.

    i have a 4.1u softmodded, rev14, with a seagate 1TB external drive, 80GB formatted to WBSF.

    yesterday i installed around 10 games to the HD, all of which were working perfectly fine. then after turning my wii on later that night, none of them would boot up. (black screen, forcing me to reboot)

    so then last night i wiped the WBSF partition, and reinstalled all the games(via wii disc drive). once again everything worked fine at first, but then after installing a copy of mario kart i got an error, black screen, and then every game would give me a black screen on boot.

    so today i tried to install mario party 8 from my computer directly to the HD. i boot up the wii, and mario party plays fine. i install wii sports from the drive, and then no games load again.

    what can i do to fix the issue? never turn off my wii after installing the games?

    some versions of loader GX have different bugs.
    I can assume your IOS are OK because games have worked.
    you have rev14
    All I can think of is its your type of HDD or version of GX.

    ive tried around 4 different versions of usb loader gx

    the latest (849 or something?, 815, 719, 600 and one more)

    i also tried updating my cios to rev15 (unofficial i think) that also didnt help...

    maybe in a few weeks when i can afford a new HD i'll pick up one thats known to work with no issues and see what happens.

    so ive deleted everything off the drive again

    installed a real copy of wii sports onto my HD from the wii.

    booted the wii on and off multiple times, and it worked everytime.

    now i'm trying to load my backups to the wii...hopefully it continues to work.
