What to install games to Hard Drive.
I have a wii with a Wiikey V1 mod chip. It I am wanting to install my games to one big hard drive.
I have 4.1U installed on the wii.
A few questions.
I assume I can insatll games on a hard drive if I install homebrew. Is this correct ? , if so a good tutorial to explain how.
Do I have anything special I have to keep in mind when installing homebrew on a wiikeyed wii?
Is there any use for the modchip I have installed once I install homebrew?
Thanks for any help.

You'll need to do this first so that you may do that afterwards.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Do I have anything special I have to keep in mind when installing homebrew on a V1 wiikeyed wii or is the modchip completely transparent to the homebrew and the wii?
The mod chip is irrelevant. It does not affect softmodding.
Krank is absolutely correct. YOur wiikey is useless once you softmod. I have a wiikey that when I upgraded to 4.2 I lost all my PAL backups. It was at this time that I chose to softmod my wii. I was able to get complete game play from the disc drive as well as going to the USB port. I am using a 1TB WD and the hard drive is so much better than having the discs anytime. I am a HDD fan from now on. Just need to back up the drive from time to time.
Just to clarify I did NOT say that his modchip will be "useless" after softmod. I said having a modchip is irrelevant when you softmod. Meaning the modchip won't affect the softmodding process.
