    Thats all pretty hard to read there.

    do you have your hard drive partition set as primary and active?

    I need some info that could help in diagnosing your problem.

    Describe the makeup of your hard drive (my hhd is below)
    1.5tb hard drive with following partitions
    1st partition: 20gb FAT32 (Primary / Active) (for wii apps)
    2nd Partition:1.4tb NTFS (Primary) (for backups and media)

    Where the files required by wiiflow are located (mine is in the fat32 partition)

    Are you using WBFS, FAT32 or NTFS for your backups?

    When your friend did a number on his disc drive. Does the drive power up? I have heard that to get a hdd working it still needs some sort of power going to the disc drive
