    I imagine you're using the wupinstaller method then where your wii games are installed on the home menu? I do not believe there's a way to do that.

    Only solution that comes to mind is if you use loadiine to play your games and just have the images stored on your HDD. It doesn't even have to be a different partition for it to work, actually I don't even know if Loadiine supports different partitions. So you might be forced to have 1 partition on your HDD if you go the Loadiine way.

    No matter the partitions or how you format an HDD, when you go and plug it to the WiiU it asks to reformat it, and you loose all configurations on the HDD.
    WiiU uses 100% HDD space for it and format it in a proprietary file system.

    Loadiine cannot access USB devices. Only SD card slot.

    That would be such a pain to do though, constantly pulling the drive from WiiU to PC. I also imagine it would easily be corrupted prompting you to loose all your data.
