    Multiboot Wii Questions

    Hi everyone, recently I softmodded my wii & now I want to run multi-iso DVDs. Specifically, I want all my favourite games on one disc(Mario Kart, Sonic & SEGA All Stars Racing, Super Mario Galaxy & Super Smash Bros Brawl). I've found some tutorials for making the multi-boot DVDs, but I have a few questions:

    1) Can I run a multiboot disc from the disc channel if I have a modchip?
    2) Can I switch/choose games at the disc channel and/or in-game?

    Also I have found this video: YouTube - GCOS MultiGame Edition
    Are there any discs that can allow me to run multigame wii isos? How can I put the Homebrew multiboot app to disc to use on the wii like GCOS?

    I thought that sort of thing was for Gamecube games only. I've not heard of multi Wii Isos on disc. I could be wrong though.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    The SSBB iso comes from a dual layer disc and is 7.11 GB, MarioKart is 2.59 GB, and SMB is 3.28 GB. It will not be possible to get all those games on a single disc.

    Your right, that is an insane amount of space but through shrinking it should be possible to get at least 2 of those mentioned games on one disc, I'm terribly concerned if I can't get ALL of them on one disc, however I'd still like to decrease the amount of discs I use. If I could find a disc like GCOS that works for wii games without needing trucha patch that would be very convenient to me & other out there.

    Why not just usb load! You dont need any disc's for that.

    True, however I have a Mac OSX so I cannot format my thumb drive. Anyway I use it at school & I've always been partial to discs over USB, software complications arise sometimes when you try to use it. Besides I also want to try making a bootable wii disc from a homebrew app myself, but if I can bypass that whole process by finding a disc, that's much better.

    I think I may of found what I'm looking for. Check out this video: YouTube - Wii Multiboot DVD

    However I cannot be sure he was loading from the disc channel, I didn't see it on the system menu & even if he was using the disc channel, I don't know where this disc can be found. Any ideas/thoughts?
