Uhh... Basically you supply power to your hard drive maybe a minute before actually turning on your Wii. So your hard drive is powered off of something other than the Wii before you turn your Wii on.

Just throwing this in here, it’s usually a better idea to use a flash drive (or solid state drive I guess) rather than a hard drive if you’re making a portable. Hard drives have moving parts and are pretty big and can be more power hungry. With a spinning hard drive you may run into issues moving the drive around too much and finding enough space for it. If you’re not doing a portable then whatever will work. :)

Updates are a pretty simple process. That video shows you how to install the NoWifi ioses when you install Pmii

"If I install with wifi enabled could I get the covers"
Yes, but if you trim your board it will be extremely hard to wire wifi properly.

"Could I use another hard drive as well..."
Yes and no. You would need to turn off, swap what drive is connected, and turn back on for this to work. PM only supports one drive at a time, though you can install it on multiple drives and swap them out on the same system with no issues.
