Noob asking for lots of help. I know this will not provide enough info & I apologize, I'm just ready to punch a wall. I'm trying to do this for my girlfriend's children, whose father recently died. Using a 128gb SD card I was able to get the Homebrew channel up & running with FCEUX, SNES9X, GenplusGX, Nintendont, Wiimednafen & Retroarch & this is the last step in this "gift" for them. Anyway I'm rambling. Sorry. I just want them to be able to play Wii iso's on this "soft modded" Wii v4.3 BUT I can't get it. Been trying for over a week & my patience is running out. I need help. Here are some random questions I THINK I need answered but I no longer know. 1) how should the USB HDD be formatted? It's 200gb. How much should be FAT32? How much should be OSX Extended? --Currently I have a 32gb FAT32 partition & the rest, 167gb is OSX Extended-- 2) Of those partitions does one of them need to be formatted as a WBFS partition using the Witgui app? If yes which? 3) When using Witgui to try & transfer a Wii ISO (Metroid Prime Trilogy) from my iMac to my USB HDD which partition does the iso file go to? do I transfer it as an iso file or have Witgui convert it to a wbfs file? do I split the file? If yes to what size? what do I save the file as? ( I tried wbfs/MetroidPrime Trilogy [R3ME01]/R3ME01 ) but still couldn't get anything up & running on the USB Loader Gx so......... 4) what should the settings on USB Loader GX be set to? 5) do I need to install ciOS 236? I have the files but the only instructionalvideos Ive found are for PC not iMac. I know I am forgetting alot of info so if anyone has the time to help out I will answer any questions to try to get this working. Thank you for any help you can offer.
