    [bold]HOW TO BOOT IMPORT GAMES FROM THE HARD DRIVE[/bold]

    [bold]YOU REQUIRE:[/bold]
    [bold]1)[/bold]-PS2 with Hard Drive with games installed (This is not a backup tutorial so I'm not gonna explain how to backup games to HDD).
    [bold]2)[/bold]-Swapmagic 3.3 or above DVD or CD.
    [bold]3)[/bold]-HDLoader or HDAdvanced / DVD or CD.
    [bold]4)[/bold]-A Disc swapping method such as Slide Tool or a Flip-top Case.

    [bold]HOW TO LOAD IMPORT GAMES ON A PAL/NTSC SYSTEM FROM A HARD DRIVE[/bold]
    [bold]1)[/bold] - Put swap magic in the drive and load it up.
    (Note: if you are using CD Version you need CD version of HDLoader/HDAdvanced).
    [bold]2)[/bold] - When prompted, use your disc swapping method to change Swap Magic for HDLoader/HDAdvanced.
    [bold]3)[/bold] - Using the Swap Magic menu onscreen, change the program loading option from 'NORMAL' to either 'PAL' or 'NTSC' depending on which you would like to boot your program as. This will force HDLoader/HDAdvanced to load with the correct software only.
    [bold]4)[/bold] - Hit ok when you have selected the correct option.
    [bold]5)[/bold] - HDLoader/HDAdvanced will load as normal but will boot your CD/DVD images in the required mode.

    I was using Swapmagic 3.6 and HDAdvance to boot my HDD like this, I tested this with a Legit copy of Swapmagic 3.3 and a burned version of Free HDLoader and that also works.

    Or you can just patch your games to the correct region before you put it on the harddrive...thats what i do at least.
