I followed this tutorial to get HBC going and put some of the common apps on my wii. Somehow I ended up in another tutorial for the cios installation that had me using Base 56/248, Base 57/247. At this point I thought I was all set and went to load USB Loader GX and would get an "Exception DSI occured!" error and it would crash. Wiiflow just shows a few blips of colored pixels in the center of the screen and never finishes launching. These two only occured when I had a fat32 formatted external HDD in 32kb clusters plugged in to the leftmost usb port of the wii if it were standing up. So I followed the instructions on https://code.google.com/archive/p/d2x-cios/wikis/How_To_Install.wiki and reinstalled d2x-v10-beta52.zip in base 56/249 and 57/250 and tried again. Now USB loader boots into the application but nothing loads, just a white background with a bar at the bottom where I assume would have wii options/settings. Wiiflow does the same as before, just stays on a page flickering multicolored distorted pixels. If I unplug the HDD USB loader loads fully displaying the apps on my homescreen as if there were no problem as does Wiiflow. At this point I'm unsure where to go next. All I want to do is get this HDD recognized so I can start ripping my collection into it and play discless. Can anyone give me some direction? Edit After plugging the HDD back in and attempting to load USB loader again, I'm met with the Exception (DSI) occured! message once again. Edit** Waked through this guide https://sites.google.com/site/completesg/backup-launchers/installation At the point where I was installed cios 249 base 56 v10beta53-alt the installation froze. Waited for the progress bar for about 10 minutes and gave up. Moved onto this guide https://www.reddit.com/r/WiiHacks/comments/1qq0a0/trying_to_get_cios_rev20b_installer_to_work/ and ran DOP-Mii, it was going well until it failed to install something because of NAND permissions. Went back to d2x and thought I'd keep trying, now it won't let me install CIOS because of an error at the bottom where I should be able to press any button to continue, instead it flashes the error about failed module(can't read it) and then moves back to the HBC. What have I done... I was going to post a syscheck but running it prompts a big red X and "failed to get the stored TMD for IOS36" Any help?
