All .dol's have to be renamed to boot.dol. Remove the boot.dol, keep the r416, but rename it to boot.dol, and put in the Wiiflow folder.
Well, my 1st attempt did not work.
I removed the usb-loader directories and the .dol file. then I placed the r416-pre.dol in the root. All I got was a black screen.
So I removed the r416 and copied the boot.dll from the wiiflow to the SD root. Black screen again.
Still trying to get it to auto boot to WiiFlow. I renamed the r416-pre.dol to boot.dol and changed my priiloader settings. But all I can get to happen is to boot to the system menu when I have "installed file" chosen. I also have a cd:\boot.elf file that was on there from before. I have tried with and without that file - same results. The file size of the r416 file is 1,773. There is already a boot.dol file in the cd:\wiiflow directory that came with the download extraction. That file size is 3,702. There is also a boot.dol file in the cd:\apps\wiiflow direcotry with a file size of 3,702. I tried to use that file, rather than the renamed r416 file and still nothing.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4398921/NForwarderWiiflow.dol Go into priiloader settings --> Autoboot to installed file --> Return to autoboot Save settings and try again.
Well, I had trouble getting it to work.
I tried it 3 ways. 1st, with it in the root with the boot.dol. 2nd, it without boot.dol, and 3rd - removed the previous boot.dol and rename your file to boot.dol.
Each time I went to priiloader and verified that the boot to installed file was selected and return to autoboot was as well.
Then, i thought I would double check the guide and saw that I was leaving a step out.
So I did that and now it boots right to WiiFlow. GREAT!!With NForwarderWiiflow.dol in the root directory of your SD Card, power on your console while holding the
reset button to load into Priiloader. Select Load/Install File. Afterwards, navigate to Settings and make the
following changes: "autoboot=Installed File" , "return to=autoboot"
After rebooting, this will automatically load Wiiflow when you power on the console and reboot to Wiiflow when you exit a
game. To get your system menu back after exiting a game, change "return to=system menu".
Now I need to find out how to get it to recognize the games I have already loaded. I see where I can copy the covers over to the wiiflow directories, but I have not came across how to get it to see the game files in the usb\wbfs directory.
The drive is fat32
Would this apply to my case?? I think not as the programs where never listed in WiiFlow in the 1st place
I think something is wrong, as it has been about 10 minutes and the progress bar is not progressing.
I did not make any changes to the hdd before I tried to load the dvd. I assumed that wiiflow would create the directory. maybe I am wrong about that.

Well, I was not doing the "Select Load/Install File" part before checking the settings. All I was doing was putting the files in place on the SD card.
On the other hand, after over two hours, there was still no progress on the game load into WiiFlow, so I powered the system down.
I just tried a different game, with the same failing results.
I deleted the wiiflow.ini file this morning and it did not improve things.
I am going to check my WiiFlow version, and probably try and find the newest one. - I have not verified what I have now, but I assumed it is current.

yes, yes it does.
Well, I was unable to see what version I have. But I have 7 pages of options.
I have been reading the wiiflow installation thread and have gotten to page 12 - but the posts are still from 2010. I have yet to find a solution, but I will try and make sure I have the most recent version which seems to be 2.5
But now I have all these different WAD files and more research to do.
One post says that I can get the latest version here http://www.mediafire.com/?zyrtiwmmtrm
Another says to go herehttp://code.google.com/p/wiiflow/dow...+DownloadCount and get the files.
Or, others say to go here http://www.mediafire.com/?h4csva4psv6m617
And then I need to do the WAD pack or installer? Do I already have a forwarder? Do I want another?
The install all the bases. I think I already have that part, but hell, I don't know.
No wonder I am confused.
I think I will go with 2.2-RC-1-(No-Dol).zip It says it has been depriciated and a newer file might be better, but that is the newest file with a large file size.

Well, here is what I did. - very similar to post #507 that I quoted above.
Extracted the 2.2-RC-1 files to the sd,
then extracted the files in r304-250 and put them in sd\apps\wiiflow,
then I extracted r3-4-data and copied them to sd\wiiflow.
Then I got the Wiiflow_NForwarder.zip and put the dol in sd\
Then installed the forwarder from priiloader.
Wiiflow immediately saw all of my games, but no artwork. So I just downloaded them.
I think that is as simple as it gets. The guides just have so many options for this and options for that, it is hard to know what to skip and what not to.
Thanks for your patience.
