    First, make sure that you REALLY burn it as a DVD. Some softwares burn it as a CD, which will not work. I burned with with ImgBurn, which worked. Also, make sure you finalize the disk. I heard that's important, but since ImgBurn always does that for me, I can't really tell.
    Lastly, burn at 4x I tried at 8x and 2x, but at both these speeds, the Wii just reset itself after starting the disk, instead of starting the upgrade.

    Oh, and of course, burn the right image. There are 3 images, for PAL, US and JPN. You should of course choose the PAL one.

    did you use +R or - R?
    did you run the utility to pad the image?
