    Do you have CIOSCORP installed?

    If so, install IOS36-64-v1042.wad and run the installer again

    After it's installed, you can reinstall CIOS36.wad from CIOSCORP if you want.

    If you followed the SoftMii guide, then you probably have CIOSCORP installed.

    Use the power button to cycle through options, use the reset button to select an option.
    You could also use a gamecube controller.

    BootMii currently doesn't have Wiimote support.

    ???

    Why?

    What's the problem? He's told you how to control it, if you want it to boot directly to the normal Wii menu then how about reading the instructions and editing the config file?

    Having Bootmii installed is probably one of the best things you can have, it will protect you from pretty much anything you could do to brick your wii. Just take a NAND backup then edit the config file so it autoboots to the Wii menu and you won't even know its there, but you'll be glad of it when you do something wrong and your Wii goes tits up.

    Yeah, just rename the bootmii folder on your SD card after you've done a NAND backup.
    Your Wii will boot straight into the System Menu like usual

    And if you ever brick, you can rename the folder to "bootmii" again and restore your NAND.

    both is good to have, it's best if you pick up a GC controller to control it. boot2 bootmii is the main one you want though.

    If it already popped up when you started up the system you already did a boot2 install. If you can load it from the homebrew channel by pressing home and selecting launch bootmii you have the ios version installed as well. Read the readme for it and then edit the config.ini file on the sd card to say autoboot=sysmenu (get rid of the # sign) and then set bootdelay=0 so it goes directly to the system menu.

    Or just rename the bootmii folder. That'd actually probably be easier unless you want to have it autoboot to the homebrew channel. (Then you'd set autoboot=hbc in the config.ini ).

    Cause if i remember right using that installer removes all pirated WiiWare titles
