Yeah, your New Wii would ingore the HDD Partition of your SD Card. Reason being, its to protect every console from Piracy regardless if its your Data, nor is it Programmed to read HDD data outside of its own HDD. I would Recommend calling Nintendo to see if they could just transfer the Data from your old to your New Wii. Hell, you'll be lucky to get your VC games at all... as in transferred for free or you may have to Re-purchuse your collection for your new Wii. The ones Downloaded from your old Wii will not be read with your new one and not from the SD Card.
