    Do you have the audio/video cables hooked up? (I have to ask, lol)
    And as DeadlyFoez stated, def. check his sig link, extremely helpful. Used it once myself for a friend of mine.
    Why would you not make a NAND back up if installing BootMii as boot2?

    And please, what was the last thing you did before the brick?

    Come on. Don't be too rude, guys.... he won't do it again.
    He will use the search next time...

    @ypicaltosome123
    you have to have a SD card with the bootmii folder with the bootmii.ini on it before you turn on your wii.
    in that bootmii.ini there should be BOOTDELAY=10 or something like that...

    I asked him if he had the card in in the first reply, and he replied "yes I do."

    So I think he had it in, but I don't think it is configured right, I still say the a/v cables are unplugged since the "game drive" works fine! lol

    either that or it's not even installed this is why I have bootmii on a separate sd card only it is on it and nothing else will stop it from loading. i have a seperate sd with hbc etc in when i want to backup nand etc i put the other card in EASY. [​IMG]

    if you still cannot get to bootmi menu
    i noticed sometimes it's something to do with the SD card
    backup everything from your card
    format it
    and put the files back
    it should work now

    That is how I do it, I have one I use all the time that is installed, and one that has my HAND back up on it. very easy that way
