    So, I installed DIOS MIOS for my friend, and he is successful in booting games from both of our HDDs.

    Later on, I did the exact same steps to install DIOS MIOS on my own Wii, and got the games showing up on WiiFlow.
    Then, when I try to boot up a game with a disc on the drive, it goes into the DIOS MIOS screen, and a second later the "Fatal error apploader size is zero!" message appears.
    If I try to boot it up without a disc, it instantly shows me the error message.

    I've already tried all "No Disc Patch" combinations with WiiFlow and I keep getting the same error everytime.

    What could be the problem?
    (HDD formatted to FAT32, 32KB cluster, Logical, Active, etc...)

    If it changes something, my Wii has a Modchip (not sure which, though).

    I get "Fatal error apploader size is zero!"

    This means DM was unable to mount the selected ISO for whatever reason.
    • Verify that your dump is ok, just google for the md5 hash.
    • Try to install the game again (delete the old folder before)
    • Your loader is using an incorrect config version
    • You installed DIOS MIOS and are trying to load a game from SD card
    • You installed DIOS MIOS Lite and are trying to load a game from an USB device

    ADDITIONAL REASONS:
    • You are using multiple partitions, and the games are not on the correct one (you need to put games on the FIRST partition of the drive)
    • You have your Gamecube game's drive connected on USB port1, but have another drive connected on USB Port 0! (Connect Gamecube game's drive on port0, or disconnect Port0)

    I had this issue and the only way to fix it was to reformat my HDD with a 32kb cluster again.
