    Syscheck and BootMii

    Miithinks I did something wrong.

    I attempt to run Syscheck (for a different issue I'm stuck on), and it locks up towards the end of the scan, then the disk light starts flashing. Here is the log, that didn't log much before the freeze

    sysCheck v1.6.2 by Erik Spyder

    Region: NTSC-U
    The system menu v481 is running under IOS58 (rev 65535)
    Hollywood v0x11
    Console ID: 49632131
    Boot2 v4
    Found 115 titles
    Found 48 IOS on this console
    Found 3 IOS Stubs on this console

    Then I attempted to run BootMii from HBC, and that caused the disk light to flash as well.

    I'm attempting the lot of this in relation to not being able to launch ANYTHING from the USB HDD. It reads from the card (where I am forced to launch the CFG FWDer 6 app as my Wii does not seem to recognize the USB HDD in the search order).

    I completed all steps in the 4.3 Mod and reverted back to the 4.2 (since at the time there was no bannerbomb for 4.3). So, all there Hermes stuff and the IOS249v19 is there. All I want is my Wii to run apps from the USB when the card is not present...seems it's not possible, and the diag tools aren't working.

    Did DARKCORP screw me up? Should I find a way to uninstall that mess?

    Thanks!

    If your system is at 4.2, then follow the guide...If your system is at 4.3, follow the guide.

    There's even a guide to update all your IOS's...You can find that guide RIGHT HERE

    Just to be clear, I had a 4.3 updated machine when I started this endevour. Used the 4.3 guide, to the letter (sole exception, instead of going back to SM 4.1, I opted for 4.2). Everything went fine. Did the IOS249v19 update to get CFG to work properly (it did not like v17), updated it to v6, with the v6 fwd'er. Even so, when accessing the CFG channel, it wants to boot from the card, even when the card is not present. It doesn't want to boot off the HDD. The app folder on the HDD is the *exact* same one from the card, which is why I suspect the channel is not honouring the search order (which I read was sd:\<app folder>, sd:\apps<app folder>, usb:\<app folder>, usb:\apps<app folder>. But as I said, if the system does not find the app on the SD card, that's it. The HD light on the HDD blinks a few times and then the system black screen, requiring a hard reset. I was hoping to get this rig setup so that I would not need to leave the card in the card slot...but if it's my fate to leave it that way, then I guess that's that. It's more of me wanting to understand why it's not working (I'm a developer by day you see, solving problems is an obsession), plus, this is part of my kid's xmas present. <g>

    All that said, I followed your instructions above, precisely...and nothing has changed. Syscheck still freezes, and the fed'er doesn't want to play with the HDD nicely. I was hoping there was a setting I missed to force the system to look at the usb solely (like one can mess with the Windows DLL search order with a registry tweak) as far as the CFG was concerned. But since no app will launch from the USB, I figure it has to be a more deeper setting, perhaps in the HBC someplace.

    Thanks for your reply and time. I really do appreciate it. I should have made my user name WiiConundrum, because this seems to apply here. <g>

    My first system check kept freezing at the end. Turned out to be an old IOS for the Fatal Frame game I didn't need anymore, 242. When you run the syscheck, at the point it's testing ios, manually check each one from 222 up and the one it freezes on is the culprit. Reinstall it. As for the forwarder, I believe Krank has a tutorial for Cfg that has a few forwarder options on there. Can be found here

    My syscheck doesn't give me the option to manually check each IOS. It's version 1.6.2. I tried using this forums search for syscheck, but found no indication of what the latest veersion is or where is could be obtained.

    I just noticed something, maybe it applies: I put the syscheck app on the HDD as well as my SD card. I unplugged the SD card, booted the Wii and entered the HBC. Nothing. Shouldn't the HBC be seeing apps on my USB HDD in the absence of the SD card? Seems any channel that relies on reading sd:\ or usb:\ is not seeing the USB HDD, period (which would explain why the CFG fwd'er isn't working for the HDD.)

    I think I read in another post a fellow redid the MBR on the USB HDD. FDISK no longer supports that command line under XP. I'm guessing I'm going to need to use the FixMBR under the command console - assuming it reads the drive at all?
