    If you want to usb launch triiforce, it will work, but you will need a Fat32 partition (as the FIRST partition on your hard drive and also set to active). Currently I am using a 16GB Fat32 partition for triiforce and a 450GB WBFS partition for iso's.

    To get it to work from a usb drive, you just need to do all the steps from the guide but put all of the nand folders on the root of your fat32 partition instead of your sd card.

    We are close to having triiforce completely contained to a usb device, just working out the intricacies of the config file arrangement, but right now, you can put your nand (with games installed) on your usb device, then launch triiforce from the sd card (boot.dol in SD:\apps\triiforce).

    You will need a triiforce_mrc folder on the root of your SD card for cover loading and config storing.

    When I get around to finishing up the config file issue, I will release a new triiforce_mrc_ss that will allow for console selection as well as storing images on the usb device and loading/saving config files form usb as well. So triiforce will not require an SD card at all!

    Does the fat32 partiition have to be the first one on the harddrive? I dont really care about launching triforce from the harddrive, but i want the games/nand backup on my harddrive. My current setup is 700gb WBFS and about 130 GB as fat32.

    I really want to triforce, so if i have to format and do it over, i will. Its just a pain, i had alot of trouble setting up this drive.

    No, it doesn't have to be the first, mine is the 2nd and working perfect, it does have to be set as active though.

    Is there any problem, if my harddisk has more than one FAT32 partition ?

    Not on the PC side there isn't. You can have as many as you want.

    As to how the Wii handles it, not too sure, I wonder if it will see past the first partitioned fat32 drive or more like it will prob just ignore them as if they are not there.

    Why do you have multiple?

    I'd say test it out and report back.
