    This is nonsense. Not to be picky, but I'm a technical writer which basically means I write guides for a paycheck. Even when you are writing a guide that engineers are going to read, you have to ASSUME that they are not going to read the whole thing.

    Otherwise, why would you even have a section that details what you need to have before starting the installation?

    No one here is making money by writing guides but this is still relevant. I want to encourage people to practice writing up proper pre-reqs for the benefit of others.


    This is a 2-part reply:

    1) Regarding your HDD paritition size for your WADs, that would depend on if you want the entire collection that Nintendo has released and then some. I think if you have the FAT32 partition ordered before your WBFS partition, you should be able to enlarge it later. Haven't tried it but I know you can't do it if your FAT32 partition came after the WBFS partition. THAT I have tried.
    Nope! Doesn't work either. I just tried resizing my FAT32 partition - the one that I have set placed before my WBFS partition. Because EaseUs Partition Master won't recognize the WBFS partition, it lists it as "unallocated". Because of this, the program thinks the HDD is only as big as your FAT32 partition. Looks like you'll have to decide on the size of your FAT32 partition right from the beginning.
    2) When writing instructions, you can't assume anything. Everyone reads and interprets things differently. Sure, you can change your writing voice to gear it towards your audience, for instance, your fellow engineers, but even they aren't mind readers. If you're concerned about enclosing "too much detail", then just separate your instruction manual into sections. That way, you give your reader(s) the option to skip what's irrelevant to them. If they find that info relevant later, they know exactly where to glance back. Does this make sense?

    Do you have a WBFS partition on your drive? If so, it might be set as primary. You will need to unmark the WBFS partition as active/primary in order to mark the FAT32 partition as active. You may need a utility such as Acronis Disk Director to do this. Try the torrent search engines. Don't know why this is the case, since Windows sees the WBFS partition as RAW, but in my case, that's what solved the problem.

    Took me around 10 or 15 minutes but I read through the guide a few times before I did it. I also didn't have any problems with it so no troubleshooting. I would say if you know a little bit about the wii and hombrew you will have no problems doing it in a half hour or so.

    A 2-part reply in response:

    Yes, I intend to load up the whole library that Nintendo has released thus far. I am using a NTFS USB drive that I'm going to attempt to shrink with Partition Magic, then I'm going to create a FAT32 to the appropriate size, whatever is necessary to get all the games on there plus a little extra for future additions.

    As for your second part, you are reading my original post incorrectly. I am advocating too much detail, and proper organization of said details. I write manuals to the point where my 8-year old nephew can put together a X-ray machine - and this is not even a joke or exaggeration, the only thing he would be missing is attention span.

    The idea is that someone who knows nothing about whatever you're instructing them to do will be able to complete the instructions without asking questions or having to go back and do extra things. A complete and properly written guide sets up the reader to have everything ready to go so that he can follow the instructions step by step without having to go back. Additionally, if any preparation or extra knowledge is required, the well-written guide states this and references any relevant documents / web pages before even beginning the steps.

    Failure to mention the FAT32 partition that's required for the "USB-only" install is an example of what happens when you don't do this.

    @ mefain- The bottom usb port(when the wii is horizontal). If its vertical it would be the one closest to side of the wii.

    The time actually depends on the number of wads you inject to the nand with showmiiwads i did every wiiware game and it took like 45 minutes to just inject nand.
