    I have completed the setup of Wii u.. it's now able to play games from external hard drive. Haxchi and Homebrew channel is all installed.
    Can someone let me know what is the best method to transfer to internal.

    This is quite strange; when I start the Wii u without usb harddrive it says error code and connect your USB harddrive.
    Help. I need to be giving this Wii u to my customer today with some games loaded into internal. He does not have a external USB hdd handy.

    No. You can't. You'll need to format your HDD again when connecting to another Wii U.

    If you have SystemConfigTool installed, it becomes somehow part of the boot chain - so if it's on an external drive it must be available when your console boots
