    Hello

    Is it possible to use a double partition HDD with the Wii U ?

    I already have an external HDD with a FAT32 partition to use with USB Loader on vWii, but can I use the same HDD like external storage for Wii U ?

    Was thinking of formatting the whole drive with the Wii U, then use my PC to reduce the Wii U partition size and create a second partition (FAT32) to use with the vWii loader...

    Anyone tested ?

    To elaborate on Shadow's mostly useless answer...
    The Wii U won't accept the drive and will ask you to format it again.
