    I have PAL Wii U and I decided I want to the Vwii.
    1. Do I must own a Wii game? (SSBB or Lego star wars...)
    2. Can I use WB passport External hard drive with wiiflow with Fat32 format and keep PC files on it?
    3. What power Cable do I need to buy for WD passport External hard drive USB 3.0? (I read that I need to buy some power splitted cable with two usb's)
    4. What is the cheapest SSD that I can buy? ( I have 4gb and 16gn SSD's but not 2gb).
    5. Is there any gamecube emulator for Vwii? if there is, can I play with Wii u pro controller?

    Thank you.

    1. Yes, you must own one of these games (pal version since you have a pal wii u): http://wiiubrew.org/wiki/WiiMode (second column for game names)
    2 & 3. Yes, you can but most likely you will need a Y-cable to power for your disk. You will need a cable like this: http://www.amazon.com/Oyen-Digital-Y-Cable-Micro-B-Standard/dp/B0052OJ97O/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top Not sure if the brand is the best you can find. But this is the type of pins you need for your WD passport.
    3. Sorry, but I don't have time to answer that. Depending on where you live, search in Amazon, Ebay, Google shopping or other online shop aggregators you might have in your country to find something that suits your needs and budget.
    4. Yes there is, it's called Nintendont: https://gbatemp.net/threads/nintendont.349258/ It's not an emulator but rather an interpreter but that's just a technical difference. Yes, you can use a wii u pro controller as long as it is original. My third party pro controller doesn't work for example.

    You HAVE to use fat32, and any non-SDHC card will do for the install (so less than or equal to 2GB)

    In wiiflow or USB loadergx, Can I use Fat32 format external hard drive? (so I won't have to delete everything...)
    and 512mb sd will be ok? (I found one in my house) because I read somewhere that I must use 1-2gb SD card.
    Thank you.

    Yes to the first, and... well, I honestly don't know for certain to the second. As far as I'm aware it should be fine

    You can, but there's no real reason to. I would actually advise against it, since FAT32 is worlds more stable than NTFS (NTFS likes to fragment a lot)

    How do I install wiiflow on channel and on 16:9? (it's only let me do it through homebrow channel and on 3:4).
    And if my HDD is already on NTFC, and I have a lot of files in there, Does it really matter?

    It doesn't really matter for now, but you will probably be happier with FAT32. Regardless, WiiFlow works with NTFS, so your fine

    Unless you're really set on using a channel, launch the app I'm attatching from the homebrew channel every time you launch it to fix the aspect ratio. If you want to use a forwarder channel still, I'll hunt the correct one down for you
