    Create a sysCheck dump and analyse it with ModMii. Install the stuff it tells you to. (Can provide more detailed walkthrough if need)

    There isn't. It's impossible to write to boot2 on Wiis after about the second or third shipments.

    Launching BootMii requires files on an SD card, too. You can use ModMii to get them if HackMii Installer isn't loading.

    Priiloader is a great alternative.

    I don't really get what you mean, it could be one of the following answers:
    Priiloader has no NAND backup features.
    Yes, you could forward into BootMii from Priiloader.
    Yes, Priiloader gives sufficient brick protection.

    Not directly, but you can use it to access BootMii IOS (either through HBC or Priiloader itself) to do so.
    So:
    1) Install BootMii, even though it is an IOS installation
    2) Install Priiloader
    3) To access BootMii from startup, hold RESET on power on and navigate to BootMii through the menu.

    It's not a good alternative to BootMii, it's good as additional protection if you can't install BootMii as boot2. :)
