    Hello Guys.

    So, recently, some brasilians discovered a way to install some games directly to a HDD connected to the WiiU. I really wan't to try it, but I only have one HDD and is one that I'm using to USB Loader GX on my Wii ( I don't have any of the games that can hack the vWii, so I use the first Wii). Is there any way that I can use that HDD with USB Loader GX and as a HDD to the WiiU filesystem?

    I tried to search for this answer, but I didn't found any enlightening answer.

    Thanks in advance.

    No, unfortunately it's not possible. The Wii U completely formats the HDD in order to make it work. You can't also partition into 2 separate parts either.

    You can install WiiU games to internal memory (if you have enough space) and don't need a WiiU USB HDD.

    But to reply to your question, there's no way to share the drive with WiiU and vWii. You can't make any partitions.
    If you format the drive for wiiU, you will lose all your data on it.

    I know, but the space is relatively Low.
