I'm having this issue when re-hacking my Wii. I used ModMii to download all the necessary files that I needed including both USB Loader GX and WiiFlow. It came with a USB Loader forwarder WAD, and I installed it but it doesn't correctly boot to the USB Loader app on my USB. I tried a separate forwarder WAD for Wiiflow and it does the same thing. Forwarders work fine when the apps are on my SD, but then they won't let me select the USB Drive to see my games. How can I direct these forwarder to the apps folder on my USB Drive?

The forwarder that comes with modmii supports sd and usb. It could be that the hdd isn't formatted properly (I.e. Multiple partitions, and the usb loader app not saved to first partition). It could also be that your drive is slow to initialize. It could also be that you don't have the hdd plugged into port 0 (the one nearest the edge)

For now I'm going to assume that you are trying to use 1 single fat32 partition on your hdd (correct me if this isn't the case). See if the HBC can read and launch apps from usb (if u have both an SD and usb inserted, hit 1 to be able to select which one the hbc should list). If this doesn't work, I'm not surprised that the forwarder doesn't work either (although the forwarder supports ntfs and ext formats whereas the hbc only supports fat32). So first confirm you can launch apps off your USB via the hbc before trying to use a forwarder.

It could also be that your hdd just isn't compatible. Or that it's formatted as gpt instead instead of mbr

Edit: did u use modmii's main wizard? Post a Syscheck plz

Ill post a syscheck when i get home, but you were correct about fat32 1 partition. I can confirm that i can switch to usb in hbc and load apps from there. The hdd I'm using is a old laptop hdd in an enclosure, but should the cable I be using be a y-cable?

Also the apps work when run through either SD or USB, but the forwarders only work if the apps are on my SD.

Edit: Okay so big dumb moment, used my alternate partition manager on my external hdd and it wasn't the primary one, and had an old ntfs partition still on it. So it'll probably work now.

Edit 2: Yeah that was the problem this whole time. Now I need to find a way to keep my BootMii loader files on my SD without it always going to it at startup.
