    Ok, I installed Bootmii as a boot2. It doesn't come up when I turn my wii on. Is it because of my SD card being too big? I'm using a Kodak 4 gb SDHC. Just a little curious.

    Yes, it is an SDHC (4gb) It wrote the files onto the card, but I think it might be the fact of it being SDHC is the reason it is failing.

    I am using a 4Gb and have no problem with. What SM are you running? Do you have a bootmii dir on your card? Inside this dir should have three files: ppcboot.elf, bootmii.ini and armboot.bin. Do you have them?

    If you do not have this dir or these files then it did not install.

    I can run Bootmii from HBC no problem. Just not when it boots up.

    Yes. I'm gonna try re-formatting my 4gb first. If that doesn't work, then I'll try my 2gb card.

    The 4gb failed. So, I'm gonna try on a non-SDHC card

    It has been confirmed. The Bootmii booted with the non-SDHC. I appreciate the help from you guys. Thank you! Happy Holidays! [​IMG] CASE CLOSED!

    Not quite. Many SDHC cards are compatible. Just check the compatibility list.
