    This is a pending question, not a how to solve thread. Please help me by answering my question. I know the format look misleading.

    Question:
    How do I make Wiiflow constantly search for a playable partition instead of a one time check? My old wii perfectly does this without any problem.

    Introduction
    This is my third time hacking the Wii. The first two times, I never encountered any flaw of any sort. After selling my Wii, I decide to buy a launch-day Wii once again for a third time, and with a new 3TB Seagate Go Flex Drive with one partition for data and another for Wii, I was ready to test drive.

    Reproducing The Issue
    I installed iOS and did the usual stuff, but when I boot on the latest version of Wiiflow, a gaint "No Partition Found" greets me. I turn it off and on over and over until I found a work around. It seems like Wiiflow is not constantly searching for a fat32 drive, but rather it check once and never does again until the next boot.

    The "Temp" Work Around
    The temporary work around is:
    1. Turn on the Wii so the HDD can power on
    2. Turn it off to Yellow/Standby Mode so it remain power on.
    3. Turn it on to Green to play

    My Conclusion
    It seems that power off/Red turn off the HDD. The HDD doesn't power on quickly enough for Wiiflow to search for it.

    The Reward - The One And Only
    The handmade and exclusive GbaTemp Mask, containing a approximately 500 individual flawless diamonds that total more than 100 carats; there’s 53 additional diamonds in the back, and the earpiece is made of platinum, holding a single cut 7.4 carat pink diamond. And also, you get a cookie and cup of Root Beer with sprinkle of April Fool. Edit: This is a joke btw, but the question is not if you're thinking about that.

    Hate to double post, but I desperately need this answer after one month. Please lock this thread if this is a violation.

    there are many ways to work around the issue

    - use a differnt loader
    - use a different hdd (eg swap with one from your pc or friend/family)
    - wait in sysmenu or hbc till you hdd is spun up
    - create/ask for a channel/app that waits for some seconds and then loads wiiflow (crazyintro?)
    - create/ask for a real fix for wiiflow that actually does retry
