    "The installed boot1 version prevents a boot2 install"

    So I have my 4.0u wii softmodded. All is well but I keep reading brick posts where it sounds important to have bootmii installed as boot 2. I wasn't able to do this when I modded the wii. I ran hackmii again at see the above message. Bootmii can only be installed as cios (or ios sorry Im new to this). Anyways it is installed. Is there a way to get it installed as boot2? Should I be concerned?

    Just trying to be as cautious as I can with this thing as I learn the ins and outs of it.

    Btw great site a wealth of knowledge here.

    When did you purchase your Wii? Consoles made after 2008 no longer have a venerable boot 1 to install bootmii as boot2.

    You can't install it as boot2. Period.

    If you want to install it as boot2, you'll need to sell your wii and buy a used one from before mid-2008.

    There's a sticky for this. It's VERY helpful.
