    What are you trying to do? And why are you making your Wii a virgin again? There is absolutely no point in making a Wii virgin.

    In that case just remove HBC and any pirated game/channel, followed by official Nintendo update (don't do update if it is region changed).

    No matter how you virginize a Wii there will be always trace left for Nintendo to sniff out hacking.

    When you update your Wii through official Nintendo update Priiloader is removed as well. NAND clean can only remove Preloader 0.29 or older version of traces. Even so NAND clean does not make your Wii completely clean. What further complicate thing is that NAND clean can brick your Wii if improperly used.

    Priiloader is the newer version of Preloader. NAND Clean cannot remove traces of Priiloader.

    Just

    * Remove HBC
    * Remove any pirated VC/Wiiware
    * Remove any custom channel
    * Remove all game saves
    * Disable any Priiloader/Preloader hack
    * Perform official Nintendo update if your Wii is not region changed (it'll get rid of bootmii and Priiloader/Preloader)

    TRUST ME, there is no point in further virginzing your Wii. Not only is it dangerous but also there is no 100% clean Wii once hacked. Unless that Wii is broken and your client send it to Nintendo, he/she won't find out if it is hacked. Even when sent to Nintendo, they most likely won't go that far to sniff out the hacking.

    NAND Clean works fine with cios38-r17. It sounds like it is crashing while loading ios249. Reinstall ios249, cios38 -r17, install it with the cios38 installer or a known good wad.

    Trumpet did a nice job in explaining it. There is no way you can completely remove all hacks from your Wii. The 'virginizing' process will not remove the traces that are left on your NAND for a Wii. Just simply remove all Homebrew, the HBC itself and BootMii, Priiloader, etc., and update your Wii. Then, make your buyer aware that hacks were previously installed on the Wii, but have been removed and will not affect them in any way, though Nintendo would still be able to detect them if the console was sent in for repairs.
