    Alright, here's my problem. I can install the Preloader fine if the numerous numbers appearing on the top of the screen upon booting and shutting down the Wii (also delaying said processes) are any indication. However, no matter how hard and long I hold the reset button immediately after turning the power on, I can never seem to reach the Preloader menu. And the removed fails to delete the hacks.ini file (it gives a "failed: -106" line). What's wrong?

    How about you try holding the reset button BEFORE pressing the power button

    I'm so high, I don't even know!
    the -106 error means you didn't have the "hacks.ini" file on the root of your sd card when you installed preloader

    now HOLD the POWER button til your wii shuts off, then HOLD RESET while you PRESS POWER, you should boot into preloader(if you had autoboot set to system menu)
