    Hi,

    would it be possible to have 2 partitions. 1 Would be used as default HDD for vWii and the other for the WiiU?

    Currently doesn't have a free hdd to test it, would be interesting to know, if someone already tried it.
    If the Wii U only recognize a USB, would it be possible to fake a HDD Partition as USB like flipping a special bit/byte (forgot what exactly it was) on some USB's to make them recognized as DD?

    If you try to resize the Wii U partition and add a second partition to the drive, the Wii U will not recognize it and will ask to format it, so no, it's not possible.
