    So decided to use HDD instead of Disk to play games, so it happen i notice my wii has already have

    a) The homebrew channel - V 1.0.1 ( IOS36 v255.255 )
    b) The USB loader channel v 1.5 develope by waninkoko/kwiirk

    So question, any sifu here can share the next step i need to how to play games from HDD?

    First I would install an unmodified IOS58 and update the hbc to enable hardware access when loading homebrew.
    Second I would get rid of that USB loader channel and use either USB Loader GX 3.0 or the latest revision for better GameCube support.
    Finally I would install d2x cios with IOS56 as base, MPT loads different executable files so to avoid running into problems I would just use d2x and an updated loader.

    At the time of installing IOS58 I was and still am running v4.2 so I used this but it only installs a specific version of it, so I just used something like multi-mod manager to update, the old version should work fine though.
