    I have an "old" wii, 4.3U hacked since last night, and I can't get Bootmii to work to save my life. It's installed as boot2, and I prepared the SD card with HackMii Installer and installed it, I turn off the wii, turn it on and it doesn't show the BootMii menu. All I get is flashes from the disc drive. Then it shows the warning screen and no Bootmii. What do I do to get brick protection for my wii???

    Are you positive you didn't install it as IOS?

    Open up SD:\bootmii\bootmii.ini with Wordpad (not Notepad) and paste it here.

    Copy and paste this into it:
    Code:
    # BootMii config file
     
    # Video mode, possible settings:
    # NTSC, PAL50, PAL60, PROGRESSIVE
    VIDEO=NTSC
     
    # Autoboot, possible settings:
    # SYSMENU, HBC
    AUTOBOOT=SYSMENU
     
    # Autoboot delay, in seconds:
    # Default is 5
    BOOTDELAY=1
    BootMii will show up for 1 second (long enough for you to press POWER without causing to much of a delay otherwise) before loading the System Menu.

    So wait, to load BootMii I need to press power, then press it again? I'm confused.

    Pressing POWER when BootMii comes up stops the auto-boot process. POWER, RESET, and EJECT are the buttons used to control BootMii.

    Still not working, Bootmii doesn't even show up. The disc light flashes soon after I turn it on then goes to the warning screen and stops flashing.

    The boot delay default is 5 and it was at that before you told me to change to 1.

    I didn't tell you to change it, I told you to overwrite the file with what I gave you. The # symbols where commenting it out. Did you try to just change that value?

    Then you shouldn't have said that it was 5. It was 0 because BOOTDELAY didn't exist.

    Try running the HackMii installer again and see if it says BootMii is installed as boot2.

    If you have BootMii boot2, and the BootMii files are not found, the drive will flash once, and then 2 times in quick succession.

    If your Wii does that, you need to try another sd card. Also, check if all BootMii files are there, and that the card has no errors. The sd card compatibility for this is different than it is for HBC or homebrew.

    I've ran the HackMii installer so many times now to check if its installed as boot2, I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling Bootmii as boot2,

    BootMii is a bit picky with SD cards, try a different one.

    The best check to see if it is installed, is to simply use it.
