    i start up usb loader gx and it loads everything normally until it gets to "initialize usb device" in the loading screen. when it tries to initialize the usb device, the wii remote stays turned off, the wii disc slot flashes and i have to do a hard shut off (hold power button for 6 seconds).
    i've found that if i let gx run through the first 30 second wait, then plug in the hard drive, then choose to retry with cios249, it loads just fine (so do the games)

    the hard drive has three partitions, the wbfs one is the second and is set as active and is a primary partition

    in a nutshell, i want to load without having to wait to plug in my hard drive

    very similar problems.
    while loading the hard drive it freezes
    is it because there's a partition? i would format the entire hard drive to WBFS but i don't have anything that can store all of the other data that's on there
