    Thanks for the tips. I went through the entire setup and got 3 isos on my drive, but when I try and use it with the wii the 2 different loaders can't find the drive. Wii flow says error -1 and gx loader says there is no wbfs partition found and ask if I like to create one? Couldn't get by the error so I eventually said yes, but now when I put the drive back into the pc to copy isos over WBFS 3.0 can't see or load the drive?

    Any ideas?

    I figured it out. I didn't have it set as an active primary. I have a 1tb segate freeagent that I picked up a while ago for $100. Works great, about to get the 1.5tb for $140 on sale. It was listed as one of the working drives.

    Wish I had such a good and detail tutorial when partitioned HDD. I spent so much time on that.
    Just one thing: if you want to use FAT32 partition instead SD card, that partition need to be set as active, not WBFS! And, of course, all partitions must be primary!
    And again, thank you for your efforts!

    I'm not sure as I only use the FAT32 partition to keep my Gamecube ISOs but some other members may be able to help you with that.

    Yeah I recall reading it, but I created a fat partition AFTER the WBFS one so it became primary causing mine not to work. I then had to go back and designate the WBFS as primary for it to work.

    Hey guys... ok noob question approaching.

    I have my wii softmodded (with a wii key) running 4.1US. I have preloader 3.0r3, and bootmi installed as well. I have it set up to boot to USB Loader GX, and have a HDD attached. The hard drive is currently formatted for USB Loader GX, but i am aware how to create a new partition and format that.

    So my question is... is there a way to save my .wads, usb loader files, or basically anything I would put on my SD card to the HDD instead? (Im assuming i need to keep the bootmi, and preloader stuff on it) to boot the system correctly. But id like to be able to keep all my games, files, homebrew apps, etc on this drive instead of fussing with SD cards. Ive looked around but can seem to find the answer. I also assuming it depends on the app or homebrew im running, or maybe not and im just making this more confusing.

    If you could help Id really appreciate it. Or if there is a guide or tutorial i missed that explains how to set up the HDD to do this and interact with the wii and apps could you point me to it? Thanks!
