Basically when I boot my Wii U it tries to access the disc drive, it also does it when loading Gamecube games (loading the VWii) but it makes a horrible loud whirring noise due to the previous owner claiming their children shoved coins or something in the disc drive.

Is there any way preferably via software, to stop the Wii U from trying to access the drive altogether? I use Haxchi with CBHC and have no use for the disc drive anyway, it's just a hindrance

The answer to your question is no, there is no software method for disabling the optical drive. Personally I would just disassemble it and clean out whatever is in there. Easy peasy

Sure its easy. However the hard part is figuring out where that one extra bolt you have left over goes to after assembling the Wii U back together.
