    Okay, so I've modded my wii, added the trucha bug, saved a boot2 of bootmii, added Priiloader to stop any nintendo updates, and im about to install wadmanager.

    On my external HDD ive got 37gb in an Unallocated unformatted partition.

    my PLAN is to install Wiiflow, and run backups off that, since it has a beautiful UI.

    How do I get my metroid prime 3 disk to be saved onto my HDD? will WiiFlow do that? or do I need another program to save disks to my hdd. Also, will What is the program that I need to transfer my backups from my PC to my HDD?

    If you want to store your wii games in FAT 32 : Wii backup manager
    If you want to make a WBFS partition : WBFS manager

    Easy to use.

    Edit: oh yeah, if you want to use Wiiflow, you probably want the WBFS partition, there is no fat32 support (for .wbfs games) on wiiflow, only for cover and things like that.

    Woo thanks for the speedy replies! now, Based off of what ive said i've already completed, I should be able to have my New Super Mario Bros, Metroid Prime 3, and other games saved and playable by the end of today?

    Is there any step im critically missing? such as not having a certain wad, or will the addition of WBFS manager and the installation of Wiiflow and Wadmanager be all I need?

    The only thing I didn't see you mention was cIOS. Do you have any installed?

    Now, those are Wads, I see. Forgive my ignorance but are those things that are installed with WadManager? or are they like the cIOSrev15 and they are installed like that was, on their own through the HBC.

    And again, I assume he is not talking about installing ALL of them, but rather one of the above?

    They have their own installer, just like Waninkoko's cIOS installers.

    Let me clarify a few things before I go on.
    cIOS 249 and 250 are both Waninkoko's

    cIOS 222/223 are Hermes's

    The first 3 installations refer to an option in the cIOS installer that allows you to merge IOSs together for redundancy and functionality. The second and third installations are optional, but he recommends that you do these 3 merged installations so that all the bases are covered when you play any game on a usb loader.

    Just follow these instructions and you should be good to go.
    Also, please note that there is an offline guide and an online guide on the same page.
