    Pres 1 twice, change the drive to WBFS, then press 2 to save it as your default option.

    The Wii won't boot, or Cfg won't boot?

    Only WBFS should (and can) be active. You can't have more than one active drive. I still need an answer to my last question though.

    The FAT32 partition should be set as active. The WBFS partition does not need to be set active for the loader it only needs to be primary.

    WBFS is no longer needed and provides no way to recover data. Use FAT32 instead, format the entire drive to one format and use it for anything you like.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Hi. New here and I've been trying to get the partition to play Wii games through my HDD. But something happened. After following the tutorial and restarting my HDD, when I got it on again and connected it to my pc it didin' recognize the drives. EASEUS detects the two partitions, but they don't show up in My Computer anymore so I can't access them. Has this happened to anyone else? I have a FAT32 partition and a WBFS partition on the HDD. I was trying to maintain my data on the FAT32 partition while being able to put wii games on the other...

    hi Krank,

    I understand the FAT32 format to store iso images is quite new. Do we have a tool to convert old wbfs to fat32?

    Secondly, I format my hdd to 2 partitions: I followed the softmod guide and set the wbfs primary and active; the fat32 is ok at its present state. They seem to work alright. Do u suggest to convert my present hdd to your new suggestion? Is there any potential problem of my current setting.
