    Okay, so I downloaded that soft mod found here:

    But now, when I start up the Wii, I go to a page that looks like this:

    I also want to get rid of this. It appears when I press reset.

    So basically, I want a Wii that can play my back-ups, but only load the Wii's main page.

    IMy parents think I'm messing the Wii up when those BootMii and Priiloader screens show up...

    So can you guys tell me how I can make the Wii's Main Page appear? I only want that one.

    rename the bootmii folder on the root of our SD card.
    also, in preloader settings, set the wii to autoboot system menu.

    Alternatively, set the boot delay in bootmii.ini to 0. The easiest/laziest way to do this is to use the BootMii Configuration Editor.

    As for Priiloader... if you're only seeing that screen when you reset, then autoboot is not the problem. Go into the settings and change the "return to" to sysmenu.

    As said before, to get rid of the bootmii screen without removing the installation of bootmii, you just need to make sure bootmii does not load its interface from the SD card. In addition to the aforementioned methods, you can remove the SD card (or use a different one), back up the bootmii folder to your PC and remove it from the card, move the folder to a different card etc.

    Since no one else has been clear, here is what you do:

    That first picture is Bootmii. Bootmii is useful if your wii dies. I would recommend you use Bootmii once and backup your NAND (the entire memory on your Wii system) to your SD card (in Bootmii, it's the icon that shows an arrow going from the Wii to an SD card). Then just copy that NAND backup, which will be placed in your SD card as "nand.bin" and "keys.bin", to your computer, and forget about them. They're only needed in the case of an emergency.

    Now, open your SD:\bootmii\bootmii.ini file. This file uses UNIX line-breaks, so if it's hard to read, try opening it in something like Wordpad instead of Notepad. You'll see something like:
    # Autoboot, possible settings:
    Make sure that those last two lines look as follows:To ac

    What that will do is make Bootmii automatically load your system menu after 0 seconds (i.e., immediately). This will get rid of the Bootmii screen.


    That second screen shows you have Priiloader installed. This gives your Wii additional protection if something minor goes wrong. To access Priiloader, hold the reset button down while your turn on the Wii.

    You happen to have an old version of Priiloader installed. A problem with that is that the older versions refuse to boot the system menu automatically. So I recommend you download the newest version 0.3 beta and install that by just running it in the homebrew channel.

    Now that it's installed, hold the reset button while turning on the Wii to get to the Priiloader menu, and click Settings. In Settings, you'll find two options: "Autoboot" and "Return to". You want to set those to the following:
    Autoboot: System Menu
    Return to: Autoboot

    What this does is if Priiloader is loaded when you turn on the wii, it will automatically boot the system menu. And when you exit a game by pressing the Home button and returning to the system menu, it will return to the place it autoboots to -- the system menu.


    If you set those settings for both Bootmii and the newer version of Priiloader I provided, then both should automatically boot the system menu instead of showing the bootmii menu or the priiloader menu. That should fix your problem.
