You can format a drive to an ext format using most partitioning applications or Linux.These steps need to be performed to make Configurable USB Loader try to launch IOS248 or IOS224 at startup.The new version of d2x allows you to bypass IOS reload.That means the handful of games that didn't work before (Metroid Prime Trilogy, Sam and Max, CSI: Deadly Intent, House of the Dead, etc.) now work perfectly.With v35a6 and later, this can be done with your Wii online, or you can upgrade manually.Note that if you have never done the steps above, you need to do so.
Most external drives come formatted as FAT32 and do not need to be reformatted for use with the loader.
If you wish to format a drive to FAT32, this tool is recommended if you are using Windows (the partitioning application that comes with Windows won't create a FAT32 partition of a large enoguh size).
GParted or any other partitioning application can also be used.

We highly recommend Configurable USB Loader (known as Cfg for short) as it has the most features and the best customisability of the many USB Loaders available. Configurable USB Loader does not require a hard drive, but it is recommended for installing games.
