I'm sorry but this guide does not say any steps on what to install on the Wii, it just says what to do on the PC and I got the game on the HD np.
    There are two sections that describe adding Wii game ISOs the the WBFS-formatted disk drive partition. One for using the USB loader to directly install the game from disc to the HDD from the Wii Drive and the other using WBFS Manager to add the game iso file to the WBFS - formatted drive/partition.

    As mentioned in the guide, you should have first completed the softmod including the steps of installing cIOS and the common IOSes used by most games. Having also installed USB Loader GX as well as NeoGamma (from the softmod) you should be able to use either of these loadersto load and play whatever game ISOs you installed. This guide describes the use of the USB Loader GX.

    Are you confused about how to install USB Loader GX? If it is a wad file, use Wad Mgr. cIOS38rev17 should have been installed already as was the Hermes IOS222/223-is that your question? Have you completed the softmod already-you seem to state you have the games on HDD-so where are you lost?

    OK, I got you located now. You just completed Dogeggs' softmod tutorial. You will have already installed cIOS38rev17-that was in Step 3. So no need to rerun your cIOS38rev17 installer.

    Hermes IOS222/223 is needed if you play the music games with musical instruments-the directions for that install, if you need it, it is HERE. It does not hurt to have the option to play from IOS222-USB Loader GX allows you to choose to load the game using either IOS249 or IOS222-so having the Hermes IOS222/223 installed can be handy even if you don't play with USB instruments.

    After you finish adding or installing your games to your HDD, run USB Loader GX, select the IOS you want to use (as mentioned either 249 or 222), and select your game from the list that should show up-should look just like the graphic.

    USB Loader GX can be run in several formats-most members prefer to either install as a channel wad . Did you get that going on your Wii already? You would have downloaded the USB Loader GX files either from the Optional section of the 3.1-4.1 tutorial or from the link in this guide (same versions are provided).

    If they don't work for you, let me know and I or someone else will provide you a link to download another revision of USB Loader GX.

    Got many games now on HDD, and so far i have 1 game that wont play ( quitar hero 5 ) do i need to change from iso249 to iso222 as its a music game?

    Also call of duty modern warfare reflex, i have done several missions but not sure what level its on, you get back in helicopter after saving woman stuck in helicopter on the ground. then the nuclear bomb goes off and the helicopter starts to spin out of control ( it then freezes in this spot every time )

    any advice or others with a fix

    Thanks again gen3sf, i can appreciate your position on torrenting. Im not planing on uploading or downloading any material as im somewhat fearful of the ramifications of doing this, authorities being the main one, so i tend to stear clear.

    You guys on this forum are a great help and i will surely be making a donation to it.

    keep up the excellent work

    Cheers
    Gak

    if you trying to get rock band to work the
    TRY THIS YOU DONT NEED WIFI


    THIS SHOULD WORK BECASUE I DOWNLOADED ALL THE FILES ON SD CARD THE UPLOADED THEM AND HERES THE GUID TOO

    and i made a guide using CYB3RFR34K guide but i edited and made it simpler (well for me it is =] and it worked)

    FIRST YOU NEED TO COPY ALL THE CONTENT INSIDE THE "COPY TO ROOT OF SD" TO SD CARD THEN YOU FOLLOW THESE STEPS



    1 - Start HomeBrew Channel and start the cIOS 222 Installer
    2 - Read the warning message and push A
    3 - Select IOS249 to perform the install with D-pad left/right and push A
    4 - Select to Install Custom IOS 222 and select Use IOS38 merged with IOS37
    5 - Wait for download and installation to complete
    6 - Start HomeBrew Channel and start the cIOS 222 Installer again
    7 - Select IOS249 "again" to perform the install with D-pad left/right and push A
    8 - This time select Custom IOS 223 and select IOS38 merged with IOS60
    8 - Start the Homebrew Channel and run Wad manager 1.5
    9 - select USBLoaderCFG_Forwarder-UCXF.wad and install on ios 249
    10 - Quit wad manager, quit homebrew channel.
    11 - Now, in your wii system menu look for USB loader CFG channel, click on it and Start it!
    12 - prees B so it can show the list of your games
    12 - find and Select GH5 game
    13 - press 1 on the control
    14 - scroll down until u selected ISO: set it to use ios 222-mload
    15 - click A to start game (there should be a green line acros the screan for a couple secounds, its good) and the game should load then ROCK ON!!! XD
    16 - dont take out the sd card just leave it in your wii

    - Edited by BOOSKILLA but Thanks CYB3RFR34K for his guide that i used

    and it worked for me for the following games

    Rockband 1--TESTED AND WORKED
    Rockband 2--TESTED AND WORKED
    Rock Band Track Pack: Vol. 1--TESTED AND WORKED
    Rock Band Track Pack: Vol. 2--TESTED AND WORKED
    Rock Band LEGO--TESTED AND WORKED
    Rockband: The Beatles--TESTED AND WORKED
    Guitar Hero 5--TESTED AND WORKED
    Band Hero--TESTED AND WORKED
    AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack--TESTED AND WORK

    Guitar Hero Aerosmith--TESTED AND DID NOT WORK
    Guitar Hero World Tour--TESTED AND DID NOT WORK
    Guitar Hero Smash Hits--TESTED AND DID NOT WORK
    Guitar Hero Metallica--TESTED AND DID NOT WORK
    Guitar Hero Van Halen--TESTED AND DID NOT WORK
    Guitar Hero 3--TESTED AND DID NOT WORK

    HOPE IT HELPED YOU =] oh and im using ROCK BAND DRUMS/GUITAR/MIC
