    Hi, sorry to bother you with my shitty frenchie-english but all the french WiiU Hombrew's forums are dead now, so, here I am and here is my problem, and it's pretty dumb :
    Nintendont gives me this message when i launch a game : "no fat device found or missing usb /games dir" and it reboot to the vWii menu, and i have to restart USB Loader GX.
    But my path are correct as much as I know, my HDD is in FAT32 / MBR / HIDDEN, the USB ports are correctly plugged in, so i don't really see any possibility to solve this, if someone have an idea, i will be pleased to know it, thank you in advance.

    I made a video to show it, if it can help, here's the link :

    Thanks :P

    I followed the definitive vWii Hacking Guide on this website, so my nintendont version is the one in this tutorial, don't know if it's the latest.

    It's an HDD with a Y cable.

    go to the nintendont github
    https://github.com/FIX94/Nintendont scroll to about the bottom of the page and you will see
    Quick Installation

    click on loader.dol, and save it to as boot.dol

    also grab the meta.xml and icon.png if you want, place these into your nintendont folder

    SD:/apps/nintendont/boot.dol

    see if that helps

    Wicksand : I will try it tomorrow and give you a feedback, thanks for the help !

    Missingphy : It seems to be an important part to convert the HDD to MDR in the guide but i can try it too, thank you too !

    please remember to backup everything. Once you have done so, open a command prompt as administrator. Then type:
    diskpart (if it asks you to use admin privileges, say yes)
    list disk
    select disk # (# represents the number of the disk you want to convert. please select the correct one, as if you don't do so, you will have a bad day)
    clean (this will erase everything on the drive, including partitions)
    convert gpt
    create partition primary
    select partition 1
    format quick fs=fat32
    assign
    exit

    then restore everything to the drive and try again
