Thanks for the help guys, but the only progress I have made is backwards. I'm going to have to give up on this for now before my Wii hits a wall.
I just want to thank you guys again for your help, I managed to get it to work flawlessly. It was the HDD I was using. I dug out an old WD 160 gig external I had long since abandoned due to poor performance from it's age and my mistreatment and it worked like a charm. It also wasn't on the list of compatible hard drives but I can confirm the model does work.

Hey, by all means submit it --- this is good stuff to know. You should also submit your drive that didn't work, so users may know it's a YMMV (Your mileage may vary) thing.
