    Yes you can, but I would invest in a new SD card, seems the hacks can really spice up how the Wii works.

    Yeah it will install without a hacks.ini, although having one really helps in terms of additional functionality.

    You could even borrow a friend's sd card for it. Once you pick which hacks you want, you don't need the sd card in the future as the hacks.ini is saved to the nand.
