    I installed my wiikey all points look well. I burnt the .iso config 1.3 using nero. On the wii menu I see the GC game image and can select it, but after I select start I get a black screen and a disk read error message. Any suggestions?

    After researching I found out that I had a wiikey clone, for all of those who are or will be in a situation like mine, the following is the solution: The Problem :

    Installing a WiiKey Clone post-3.0-update will give you a useless Wii. No backups will play, no Originals will play, Setup 1.2, 1.1, 1.0, GCOS, Reppa work around, kkwarez work around can show up as a GameCube disc, but will not be read. Wii blocked headers (3.0 update) / WiiKey Clone is looking for its config disc.

    The Solution :

    Download config 1.2: http://www.wiikey.cn/dl/config.1.2.rar
    Extract all,
    run 'BootableDisc_.bat'
    burn the resulting iso (region is either JAP, PAL, or US).

    Download GCOS: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/images/3/35/Make-multi-srcv3.rar
    Extract all,
    copy your 1.2 iso from above into same folder,
    Create New>Text Document,
    type 'make-multiv3.exe gcosv3wiikey1.2.iso bootdisc.us/pal/jap.iso'
    NOTE: is 'USA' for NTSC-U, not 'us' as it would be in bootdisc.us.iso. must be one of USA, JAP, or PAL (in uppercase).
    save this file as make.bat (by clicking save as and then typing make.bat, saving as type all files)
    run make.bat (takes 5-10 mins to create your gcosv3wiikey1.2.iso ISO)

    Download HexD: Downloads / mh-nexus(comes in German or English) or really you can download any Hex Editor.
    Extract Files, Open HexD, Select File>Open and find gcosv3wiikey1.2.iso, which was the resulting ISO from your make.bat.
    Now find the first line, first column (0,000000000) and change it to 50. You will now see PGCOSDVD........ as your first line, instead of GCOSDVD.
    BURN THIS ISO. Load in your Wii. Once you load the disc (like any other game), Select 'Boot DVD' from the GCOS menu. Eject the disc or just Hit A since you already have the Config 1.2 in there. Put in the Config 1.2 DVD. Configure. Reboot.
    OMG YOU HAVE A WORKING WIIKEY CLONE!

    Note: This is how you make a GCOS disc (minus the HexD part).
    Note: This has been confirmed to work on PAL and NTSC-U systems with the 3.0 firmware. This is for non-configured WiiKey clones, so if your WiiKey Original works, go find a different thread you sucker who paid too much.
    Note: -ixtab- deserves the credit, I just put together this shoddy guide. He didn't bother creating his own GCOS, he used kkwarez. Any GCOS (i.e. WiiUI, Reppa fix, KKWarez fix) will all work if you Hex edit to 50.
