    It's been some time since I did this, but if nothing's changed then the first partition must be fat32, with 32k clusters, for the GC, the second one can be either fat32 or ntfs for Wii.

    Everything can be run from a single MBR FAT32 partition. Just use Wii Backup Manager to transfer your Wii games to it. It will convert them into split WBFS files.

    Using one FAT32 partition ensures it works with the HBC, Gamecube loaders, Wii loaders, and NEEK/EmuNAND.
