There is no explicit command to this effect, but there is still a way to do it, as follows:
my problem is that i need always enter to the hdd folder to activate these modules, is there any way to activate automaticly
01: Go into the main config screen (press Select from main menu)
02: Set the top entry "Default:" by browsing to any partition and folder on the HDD and selecting an ELF (it won't really be used).
03: Move cursor to "Startup Settings:" and press that entry to enter that submenu.
04: Move cursor to "'Default' Timeout:", and adjust the setting to 0
05: Press triangle to back to the main config menu
06: Move cursor to "OK" and press that entry to save settings
07: Start FileBrowser, and use it to launch MISC/TextEditor
08: Use the Open command to open the LAUNCHELF.CNF file you just saved
09: Find the entry "LK_auto_E1 =" (near the top of the file) and change part of its value after the partition spec, to some text that doesnt exist on the HDD as a file or folder name in that location. For example "hdd0:/+ELFS/Init HDD", where "+ELFS" is a real partition, but "Init HDD" does not exist there.
10: Press R1 for the popup menu and use its "Save" command, to resave your changes
11: Press Triangle to exit the TextEditor back to main meny
After doing all of the above, your setup is complete. You should now relaunch uLE, to force it to load your edited CNF (as it doesn't match the CNF currently in use) while also testing the new HDD module loading.
At that next boot uLE will automatically load HDD modules in the attempt to launch the 'Default:' program, but when it finds that no such file exists that launch will be aborted, leaving you where you wanted to be: In the main menu of uLE with HDD modules loaded and ready for use.
NB: There are other ways to accomplish the same thing, but some of those methods end up with a nonexistent partition name for "Default:". That will still work the same way at bootup, but accidental selection of that entry in the menu will crash uLE. But with an existing partition used, the only result will be a harmless error message (for the nonexistent file).
When you first browse to the HDD in the FileBrowser you will still suffer some delay, although this has nothing to do with the HDD modules which are already loaded then. It's just that it takes some time to scan through all the HDD partitions for the first browsing. The more you have, the slower it will be...

or an easy way is to set a jpg for background stored in a partition of your hd then ule will boot look for the parition and the jpg (skin or background image) and then you'll be in the menu with hdd modules loaded
