I read somewhere on another thread on this forum and another forum that each wii has certain bad blocks, so if you use a nand dump off another wii it could write to that bad block and cause issues (brick) maybe, I am sure there are other reasons too why its a bad idea to use someones nand dump

you need a dump with your own keys, theres a program that lets you change the keys but I forgot what it's called, I'll look for it.

You cannot change the keys. Or at least, not on your own Wii. You can use a tool to change one dump to be compatible with the other wii however there can be no bad blocks in a place where the other Wii (your donor-Wii) doesn't have them.

* The version of boot1 you flash to a NAND chip must match the original one that shipped with that Wii. No exceptions.
* The version of boot2 must be equal to or greater than the one most recently installed on that Wii.
* No handling of bad blocks is performed; if your target NAND chip has a bad block that hits an important file required for system startup, I suggest you find a different donor dump to start from.
* Converting an image from one keyset to another does not guarantee everything will work. The serial number will be cloned, but that should not affect anything. The Wii Shop account will not transfer over, nor will the original account used on the broken Wii work. Most savegames should still work. Purchased channels will not work on the new Wii, nor will you be able to redownload them. You should be able to create a new Wii Shop account, all disc-based games should work, you can update the system online, etc.

That's what I meant, and I was talking about Betwiin
