    No matter whats the problem, you still never remove an IOS, I dont know what you can do now. Maybe once April 1st has passed, PreLoader might work for you and you might be able to recover

    Find a Wad Manger 1.3 ISO and burn it, then autoboot it with SaveMiiFrii.

    SaveMiiFrii:
    Using the Triwing screwdriver, take apart a GC controller. With the cover off, plug it into port 1 of the Wii. Turn on the Wii and hold all four directions of the control pad at the same time. It should autoboot the Wad Manager disc. Then reinstall that system menu.

    If you killed IOS60, your wii is as good (or better than, even) dead.

    so one of your first ideas was to remove the IOS that both preloader and the system menu were running off of?

    do you often remove all your sysfiles to your computer and find that it solves problems?

    swap it at the store, claiming defective.

    Apparently, if you have PreLoader .29 (i think its .29) installed, it pranks you on April 1st with some PreLoader repairing message.

    the worst part is, the message doesn't tell YOU to DO anything.....it's not like it said, "go muck about with the sysfiles and try to fix this"

    allow me to explain more in-depth.

    you set up preloader to run off of IOS60 (because it was there, it does)
    your menu runs off of IOS60

    savemii uses the menu
    savemiifree uses the menu
    starfall, fyi, uses the menu
    everything you have uses the menu, because the menu loads first

    except on your wii, where it doesn't load at all.

    you removed the only IOS that everything wants to try first when it boots, so, no booting.

    preloader relies on 60, 60 is not there
    menu relies on 60, 60 is not there
    all the things that rely on the menu also rely on 60, which is not there.

    return to store, seem extra confused.

    savemiifrii is working the same way as savemii-dongle does. it brings you to the rescue menu. savemiifrii is simply a gc-controller and you have to press the d-pad in all directions at the same time. that's it.
