    what failed to read boot.elf???

    the wii wont execute from the card unless you put a forwarder or something into the memory first.
    and nothing uses elf anymore either, the file is "boot.dol"

    oh right,

    you need to put the homebrew-channel installer boot.dol in the root of the sd-card first.
    then when you play zelda the gamesave will load the boot.dol
    and you will get a load of "do you wish to install" type text.
    you say yes and it does it's thing.

    you must not rename it, elf's & dol's are different.
    pulling shit like that can lead to trouble.

    you need to use fat32, and as was said - try a fresh download of it.
    oh - is the card SDHC??? if it is then that may be the problem.
    you need to use the older type of card.

    micro sd cards are not the best mate and some are very slow BUT try formatting the card again and start over

    18?

    not sure how au$ converts to Euro's but i think a 2gig sd should have been closer to $6

    Simply not true!
    4GB sd cards exists which are not SDHC..
    I have a few of them, and worked fine on the wii prior to SDHC compatibility was introduced..

    However they are more expensive than 4GB SDHC, and it took me months to find them.. And a month later 4.0 came out!
