    Bootmii won't install to boot2 on a new Wii regardless of what you do. If the hackmii installer says you can only install as IOS, you can only install as IOS. They aren't lying to you. You can only install to boot2 on Wii's older than about mid 2008ish.

    You best alternative is at least having a NAND backup from the IOS version which loads through the HBC to use in a worst case scenario and Priiloader to handle pretty much anything else besides sheer stupidity.

    If u r going to hack ur wii and u haven't any experience be careful cause u can brick it. Follow the tutorial carefully. Remember as u can't install bootmii as boot2 u should have priiloader as a precaution.
