    Just wondered whether a wii can boot games from a 2.5" external HDD which does not have a separate power supply?

    If so any good reccomendations?

    You shouldn't have a problem, I've seen it done before, but the Wii is picky. Here is a list of compatible drives. Obviously not everything is listed, but it might help.
