I'm having a really strange issue with my Wii. Every time I start a channel—whether it's the Homebrew Channel, Disc Channel (with a retail game), Netflix, what have you—the system hangs on a black screen for a long time before actually starting the software. I've timed this delay several times, and it generally takes 2–2.5 minutes after pressing the Start button on the IPL before the software loads. In the case of disc games, this delay occurs before the optical drive begins reading the disc, as the spin-up is audible. All my tests were performed with no Gamecube controllers connected, and no Gamecube memory card or SD card inserted. I do have the Homebrew Channel and BootMii installed. Due to my typical usage of the console, I initially observed this happening only with disc-based games, and so believed it to be a possible conflict between the 4.3U software update and one of the custom IOS packages I had installed. To rectify this, I used DOP-Mii v15 to remove any IOS numbered higher than 200, as well as any stub IOS. After that, I performed a System Update from the Wii's menu (which ended up replacing most of the stubs I'd deleted), then reinstalled BootMii and HBC from the latest installer. My hope was that this would put the Wii's software in a state equivalent to taking a fresh 4.3 system and cracking it for the first time. Needless to say, it didn't work. I'm still seeing the same delays loading discs that I had before, and everything on the System Menu—from Photo Channel 1.1 to the Mii Channel—exhibits some delay before loading. (To be fair, I did not test non-disc software before cleaning out my IOS list, but I have no reason at this point to believe they did not have a delay earlier.) I can't find an option to attach files to this post, so I'm going to put my latest SysCheck report (after cleaning and reinstalling) inline here. Apologies for the huge vertical scroll.

Aside from doing a full format/system restore and starting over from scratch (which I'm not keen to do; VC data and such), I'm not sure what action I can take at this point. Hopefully one of you guys who's really deep into things can see something I can't. Maybe a wonky version number somewhere. Much appreciated. EDIT: Removed my console ID from the report for possible security reasons.
