    Ok, first, what are you talking about a WAD for? Install USB Loader GX and get the .iso or .wbfs file. Don't do an e-shop version.
    Second, what are you talking about installing IOS80? No, no no no No No No NO NO NO NO. Just no... JUST NO! Don't install any IOS or cIOS that isn't directly specified in the stickied vWii Guide here. And certainly never install a Wii IOS file on the vWii.

    First thing you should do, is if you have the HBC installed and can run homebrew, go to this thread, and download and run sysCheck. Post the results here; hopefully you haven't messed anything up on your vWii, or if you have, we can fix it relatively easily.
    Then read through my stickied vWii hacking guide. DO NOT try to do anything in the vWii Hacking Guide until we advise you if anything needs to happen on your vWii after a sysCheck.

    I see now you said Ocarina of Time. I completely thought you said Twilight Princess! Yes, what KiiWii posted will work.
