    I'm obviously missing something, hopefully something not too terribly obvious, else I'll feel like a total moron.

    Release-day Wii, system menu 4.3U, homebrew channel installed, USB Loader GX and WiiFlow both on SD Card, both launch just fine and browse games on two different USB HDDs plus a USB thumbdrive, but every time I select and start any of several games, the select screen is all black (with the Settings and Start buttons) and Start just fails back to either the homebrew channel or the Wii menu (if I launch from the WAD).

    sysCheck 1.6 gets almost all the way through the vulnerability check then hangs with a flashing drive. It got this much info, anyway:

    sysCheck v1.6.2 by Erik Spyder

    Region: NTSC-U
    The system menu v513 is running under IOS58 (rev 6176)
    Hollywood v0x11
    Console ID: 69469391
    Boot2 v4
    Found 73 titles
    Found 35 IOS on this console
    Found 14 IOS Stubs on this console

    Drive is dead on this Wii, so I really wanted the HDD loading to work. Any ideas? What info am I leaving out? What uber-important step did I forget when setting all this up?
