    Sorry starting a new thread about this, I hunted around in the bugs.bootmii site and couldn't find anything exactly like this. Maybe I'm just an idiot though.

    I installed bootmii as a boot2 and everything worked find it seemed, so I didn't do the IOS part. It created the files on the sd just fine. then after I exitted the program it loaded hbc just fine, but when I tried to exit to sysmenu, nothing, just blackness.

    So I'm like, well, no biggy, maybe just needs a restart. So I restarted and nothing, blackness. I had a small heart attack. (I was expecting bootmii to load...) Everytime i reloaded it was acting like it was bricked.

    Anyway, I finally tried removing the SD card and it booted just fine to the system menu.

    So what gives. Do I have to do the IOS part for it to work. I would hate for it not to work and not even be able to boot without an SD card inserted. Anyway, appriciate the noooob help.

    other info:

    My wii was already 4.0 hbc installed, as well as dvdx and preloader.
    I've got a transend 133x 2gb sd card, which I didn't format beforehand or anything.

    cayspekko: its because of the bad sd card, my bootmii menu takes less than a quarter of a second ( i have an awesome sd card)
