    You need to post more details.

    What system menu your on.
    What do you have installed modding wise ( cios,bootmii,priiloader ext...)

    why you restored your nand

    Woah woah hold up...you downloaded another Wii's Nand?


    Err...If I remember correctly, the nand for the Wii is console specific (as is most nand dumps I would suspect), as it's signed by your Wii's privacy keys. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that's right.

    Now that I think about it... He shouldn't even be capable of doing that - isn't BootMii refusing to FLASH with NAND images that are lacking keys or are embedded with keys that don't match?

    The OP will have to describe the procedure in more detail - what software was used, in what order etc., and if a stupid Youtube tutorial was involved, post it so that we can shun it as always.

    If you don't have your original NAND, you don't have the keys, and if you don't have the keys, you need a NAND Chip or whole Motherboard transplant, and this is connected with costs likely exceeding the cost of your Wii as it is. You can sell it for spare parts.

    Simply use bootmii-boot2 the restore the backup you made before flashing the downloaded nand image.
    If you did not make a backup go and pay your idiots tax to the nearest wii dealer.
    If you have a backup but do not have bootmii-boot2 you might get at slight tax reduction by the way of "deadly foez" (spelling to avoid bothering him for now)

    Theres no way he flashed a nand he downloaded to his wii.

    Bootmii wouldn't allow it and would even tell you the backup is from another wii.

    Maybe he installed a different system menu that what he was currently on and didn't have the ios file needed to go along with it.

    Need a lot more information from the OP.

    I think bootmii-ios nand restore should make it clearer that is belongs in the really desperate measures departement.
    Like voluntary infliction of severe chemical or radiation poisoning. Never a good idea but in rare cases a viable alternative.

    If you purchase a stand alone motherboard from a reputable seller, then you should not have any problems. Any wii dvd drive will work with any wii motherboard. Bluetooth and wifi modules are interchangable with any wii motherboard also.
