Just got given a wii with "disc read error" on all games....

What can I do to get hbc on it to run usb loader.. Can I put another dvd drive in it , install hbc then take the drive back out??

What options have i got??

I am not sure what you mean by "paired to the mobo like 360's" but as of now, you have to run twlight princess to be able to install the homebrew channel.

There is absolutely no pairing. You can put any drive (DMS / D2A / D2B / D2C / D2C2 / D2E) in any Wii and it will work.

You could borrow a drive from someone else's wii, install HBC, then give it back. Or use flatmii. Or buy a replacement drive. Or if you're not in a hurry, you could wait for Comex's Bannerbomb - which probably won't need a dvd-rom at all.
