    you say you had a nand backup?

    so I assume you have bootmii installed as boot2?

    do you still have the bootmii files on the sd card in the non functioning wii? (the files required to boot into bootmii)

    want the bad news?

    if you cannot boot into bootmii, or preloader, basically, your console is screwed.

    sorry.

    Oddly though, restoring a nand backup shouldn't affect bootmii...

    anyway, next time, don't just do things without researching first. A quick post here can save you much headaches.

    i was thinking is it possible to boot from a flash drive then use nand backup to reinstall the system
