    Hello guys, I rescued my old Wii U with Homebrew.
    I had no problems by installing Wii U games in an external HDD to play in my Wii U Emunand (I can't remember which CFW I'm using, to play I go to an app named "HAXCHI" and then something named "Mocha" loads"). I can play all these Wii U games.

    Well, I wanted to play Wii games (I don't want to use vWii nor have another HDD just for it) so I found that by using TeconMoon's WiiVC Injector I can convert my Wii ISOs in to an installable file for the Wii U.

    Cool, I managed to convert a lot of games and successfully install them, but I can't play any Wii game. When I load the game, a message pops saying that I have to select an option with my Wii-mote, when I do that, the game "loads" but it crashes automatically.

    I was thinking that probably I mess something while converting the games, so I just decided to download some Wii games from WiiUSB Helper. The same thing happens, I can't play.
    Also I can't use vWii from my EmuNAND, dunno if I bricked it or was always unplayable.

    Can anyone help me? I just want everything in the same HDD.
    Thank you so much and my apologies for my English, I know that it hurts hard.

    EDIT: I fixed it, I was using an old CFW setup (RedNAND on Mocha CFW + Haxchi), I just removed the RedNAND (and using just Haxchi) and everything is working :bow:

    Yeah, I can't load the games without enabling it.

    I do:
    Haxchi -> "Mocha" loads -> I choose the game to play:
    If is a Wii U game, I can play it.
    If is a Wii game, it crashes.

    Well, it's a normal Wii game converted to be installed to the Wii U, according to the WiiU VC Inject compatibility list, the games that I'm trying to run are compatible.

    What file format are they? WBFS or iso and which region are the game and WiiU? What do you mean by crashes exactly and what type of storage/hard drive are you using?

    I'm using ISO format games and converting them using TeconMoon's WiiVC Injector (using Wii Retail Injection option, not adding any extra options and using the correct "keys").

    My Wii U console is from Europe, and all the games that I'm trying to install are PAL version and they are compatible.

    So I install the game in my external HDD (hard disk), with Wii U games I have no problems, I can play all my Wii U games installed.
    I run Haxchi, Mocha loads.
    I try to run the Wii game.
    The console reboots, I can't play any Wii game installed.

    Note: I don't want to play them in vWii, I want to have all my games stored in the same place (Wii and Wii U games together in the same USB).

    I'm not a Mocha user but I think you need to have games on SD for that (?) Try using WUPInstallerGX 2 to install the finished game to your hard drive. If it's a retail game (no DLC or eShop games) it will load without running Haxchi first. I highly recommend CBHC over Mocha as well. Also, I recommend using "Wii Backup Manager" to extract your ISO to WBFS format first before creating with TeconMoons app. When I get a hard crash like you're getting it's always because of the game file being corrupt or game file related. Also you shouldn't need to modify any settings in TeconMoons unless absolutely necessary.

    Thank you for the tips sir, I finally managed to fix it. The problem was that I was trying to run the Wii Games in a RedNAND.
    I have no problems now but I will save the Wii Backup Manager in case that something goes wrong.

    Have a nice day and thank you for your time!
