    ( I put it like "CFW" as it's not 100% CFW )

    Hi, I formatted the SD card that my wii-u had. It was 64GB but it'll still 32GB (Meaning the console files are still hidden on there) But there's a problem. When I had formatted it, I lost the Virtual console game to boot into that hack thing at the start called F something. (At the start of the console boot the screen goes black with some white text)

    Can anyone help? Thanks :)

    Please forgive my intelligence but can you explain in details?
    So did you formatted your WiiU or your SDCard?
    By VC game, do you mean Brain Age?
    Did you install Haxchi or Coold Boot Haxchi (CBHC)?
    What was the white text after you boot your console?

    So did you formatted your WiiU or your SDCard?: SdCard

    Did you install Haxchi or Coold Boot Haxchi (CBHC)?: CBHC.

    As long as you didn't touch your Wii U I think you will be ok.
    All you have to do now is to put back the haxchi files back to your SDCard like how it was before.
    The Wii U still have the CBHC so it will look for the files inside your SDCard.

    It needs the brain training game though. And when I formatted SD it wiped it.

    The game should be in your WiiU not in the SDCard.
    What happen is when you boot the WiiU it will search for Haxchi or Mocha CFW from your SD Card, depends on the error you receive (which you didn't tell me what's the error yet) the WiiU will fail to load it.
    If the error is -3/ -4 the press the Home button to load the CBHC menu, then choose sysmenu instead of Haxchi or Mocha.

    It was giving me error -5. I've booted into the wii-u home fine after doing those steps.

    When you install Haxchi or CBHC, it gets installed to the WiiU nand. So you can actually boot up the WiiU without the SD Card inserted, and it will still launch CBHC or Haxchi properly. Assuming you already installed CBHC or Haxchi correctly, and tested it.

    I think you actually installed RedNand, because you said only 32GB is available on your 64GB SD Card, even though there are no files on it. That could mean that RedNand copied your WiiU nand to your SD Card. However, I'm not to fimilar with RedNand, so I'm not sure if it works that way or not.

    As far as i know, CBHC is installed inside the WiiU, but CFW (Haxchi or Mocha) files should be inside the SD Card.
    The problem here is the SD Card, the OP can still boot into the WiiU when he choose sysmenu instead of cfw.

    OP didn't give us enough information, so all we are doing now is guessing :unsure:

    And ya i don't know much about RedNand too.
