    Recently softmodded a brand new EU PAL Wii. It started from Sysmenu 4.0.

    Using a 2Gb SD card I used the updatepal package referred to in the SoftMod guide to get HBC installed.
    Installed BootMii as IOS and created a NAND backup.
    Then used SciiFii to update - Admin all options.
    Then manually installed wads for cIOS202,222,223 V4 & cIOSx 249 Base 57 cIOS 250 Base 38 as per complete softmod guide
    Updated to preloader 0.4 hacks.ini for EU 4.2
    Installed USB Loader GX and everythings working fine [​IMG]

    I then decided to prepare a cleaned down version of things on a 1Gb SD card as the Wii is intended for a family friend and I don't want the Kiddy running WAD manager and various other modding utilities from the SD card but I do want to be able to use the installed card to do some maintenance if required (I'll rename the bootmii folder or something once I get it running to hide it).

    So I copied across the BootMii folder and the private\Wii\Title\aktn folder + the various files within those but whenever I try using it to load BootMii I just get a black screen and double blink pause double blink pause... from the wii drive light.

    I can launch BootMii from the 2Gb (Preloader & HBC routes) just not from the 1Gb SD [​IMG][​IMG]

    I've checked out the WiiBrew and BootMii pages and done some searching here but don't seem to be able to find a difinitive SD file(s) structure for BootMiii as IOS, any help would be appreciated.

    I have tried running the HackMii installer from HBC with the 1Gb card and re-installing BootMii as IOS to no avail.

    1st Noob Question
    "What do I need to copy ?" and "Where do I need to put it ?" in order to get my 1Gb BootMii as IOS installation operative.

    2nd Noob Question
    MiiExtractor and MiiLoader don't seem to work under this configuration ...(I'm guessing it needs cIOS 17 or earlier i.e a 249 based on 37 ) is there a version of these utilities that work with the new cIOSX's ?

    3rd Noob Question
    I copied across some WiiWare 'titles' from my NTSC machine SD card but I get "This application cannot be run from this machine" even with Region Free channels and VC enabled in PreLoader. Is this a viable method of transferring WiiWare ? [I've installed PAL versions of the ones needed and they work fine]

    Thankyou in advance for any help you may care to provide.

    1. Your SD card may not be compatible with BootMii.
    2. What errors do they give?
    3. You can't copy over channels from one machine to another using the SD card menu. Get or create WADs of them and install them with WAD manager.

    As I put in the title of the original post this is for my education rather than any pressing need to resolve the issues so many thanks for taking the time to respond.

    Thought as much - I dd install the ones I wanted from WAD's
