Nope; just stays. After 3 attempts with the same results, I tried downloading "WiiFlow StarNight" and it works, but it doesn't recognize my FAT32 HDD. It just shows "WBFS" drive, with nothing on it. Should I format it to that using the WBFS Manager 3.0? Or what?
EDIT: I also downloaded a newer version of USB Loader GX (^along with WiiFlow^), and it passes by the "Waiting for slow/HDD device...30 secs". Now, it loads up and goes to a black screen.

did you use backup manager to transfer the iso to the hdd? what HDD are you using? Iunno dude, you are just running into loads of trouble lol. You dont live in so cal do you haha. Your email makes me think you are in Thailand.
My e-mail is off of the anime "Hetalia", which my older sister and her friends were all different characters. They deemed me as "Thailand", since I look/act alot like him haha. It's weird to explain. And no, I live in Oklahoma. I'm leaving in like 10 days for my Air Force physical, it's why I was wanting to get this done so fast!
Yes, I used backup manager and that worked smoothly.
My HDD= Western Digital My Book Essential 1 TB (1,000 GB). I've already checked and it's a working HDD
Is there any way you or anyone else could e-mail me their SD card files? Maybe that'll work.
And the sad thing is, my WiiFlow/WiiFlow StarNight doesn't even want to work anymore ;A;. When I tried re-doing the whole Mauifrog "Softmod ANY mod" guide again, the letterbomb thing doesn't work like it used too. So now I can't even do that, hahaha! What can I say? I'm screwed.

Is the games partition set to primary and active?
Maybe see if using a fat32 formatted hdd works for you. Look at the Fat32 Guide in my sig (it says mac but it is for both)
Hint: If you followed the Maui guide, you're at 4.1 not 4.3. Letterbomb only works for 4.3. Use bannerbomb for 4.1.
1 User Says Thank You BluPhant For This Useful Post
@Bluphant: Why didn't I realize that before? Thank you!
EDIT: Ok, thanks to Bluphant for the BannerBomb technique, I've virginized my Wii and re-did the WHOLE process of Mauifrog's "Mod ANY Wii" guide. Reading more closely, I feel like I've accomplished alot more this time! I must've over-looked the "hacks_hash.ini" the first time with Priiloader, because now I've enabled them! I have the CFG-USB Loader working properly, but this is how I do it:
1) Plug in SD card
2) Turn on Wii
3) Run CFG-USB Loader Channel
4) When it gets to main, white screen (with WiiHacks.com in background), plug in HDD
5) Message comes up: "Mounting device, please wait...(90 seconds timeout)
After that, it just freezes up. My Wii MUST be on, because my Wiimote's 1p light is shining. What do I do? If need be, I can post another syscheck. But I'm sure I'm on the right track now, seeing as how I've only used Mauifrog's files off of his guide. As usual, all help is very welcome! Thank you much in advance!

Then it has to be something with your drive. Have you completely followed the FAT32 guide?
Yes, I'm in agreeance with you Cjizzle.
And I don't want to lie and say "yes", because *obviously* SOMETHING isn't working quite right because no matter WHAT USB Loader I use, it either freezes or says that I don't have an HDD "plugged in", which is a total load of bull.
I'll follow the guide, step-by-freakin'-step (haha), and see if I can fix this! I hope it works this time.

Best of luck! If you run into any questions about anything in that guide, post them in that guide and we can go from there.

But when I use the left (closest to the edge), it freezes!
I've updated all of my IOS and cIOS files through Mauifrog's updated files (close to the top of his guide that I've referenced in here multiple times), yet...to no avail. It seems I'm un-able to use a USB Loading device for some reason. Each and every one doesn't work. If my syscheck is fine, and my HDD is compatible, what could be the problem?
Do I need to put files ON TO the HD root? Or nothing but the "wbfs" folder that the WBFS Manager 3.0 puts on there?
Do I need to do another guide?
Do I just need to get a NEW HD? (<Gosh I hope not >.<)
I feel like I've climbed a mountain, but forgot my water bottle at the beginning of the trail (poor analogy, I know). So if anyone could RE-DIRECT me with a DIFFERENT guide, besides Mauifrog's and the FAT32 one(s), then let me know please.
As always, ALL help is very appreciated. Thank you in advance everybody.
