So my hard drive causes the cfg USB loader to freeze on the splash screen if it is connected before turning on the Wii. The hard drive will work fine if I plug in the power on the hard drive after cfg USB loader boots up past the splash screen and gets to the console. I have tried using different cIOSs but have not found a fix yet. I am currently running cfg v70, though the problem has been since v60 which is when I started using the loader. I have also just updated to booting cfg with cIOS d2x v6 in slot 248 base 56. I can get it to work during an initial startup if I allow bootmii to load on a delay of about 16seconds first, then goto the system menu. Then cfg will load and mount the hard drive fine. But if I turn off the Wii, and try to use it again later, cfg will freeze at the splash screen again. It seems to be how the hard drive goes into power down mode is effecting it, but I'm not sure if there is a fix for this. Any help would be great!
