    I have seen people mention system transfer but that means the save games would be removed from the Wii.

    Here's my situation, I want to move the soft modded Wii to a different room for the kids along with their saves but at the same time I put a lot of work in to those save games and I want to be able to continue those games from the WiiU with vWII.

    Thanks.

    Do a NAND backup with Bootmii on the Wii, run the system transfer, restore the NAND backup?

    Yea, as long as you don't mind the save files being effectively branched forever, this strategy works. Do a Nand backup, system transfer, restore backup. I did it with my wii. The eShop on the old Wii won't work correctly, but your game saves will be safe.
