    Sorry a request for help has to be my first post here, but I was told
    by best bet for help would be here,
    if this happens to be the wrong section, move it as needed. Thanks.

    Here is a basic idea of whats going down.

    Im in the process of moding my Wii to play "back up" games if you will,
    as well and do all other homebrew things, I start up my Wii and Im on
    preloader (v0.29) I CAN open homebrew channel, the problem lays on
    the systemmenu, I get the error:
    "The system files are corrupted.
    Please... bla bla, operation manual
    bla bla"

    I know your first thought is, "Use recovermii to boot your NAND"
    good idea, some reason that thing never worked for me, I have a backup
    made from bootmii v3.0, which I understand had some issues (I updated
    to 4.0, no dice) when I started having the "system files corrupted" error
    bootmii seemed to be corrupted too, I have not yet tried to reinstall it

    um, other info:
    bottom left of preloader screen,
    ISO v50
    systemmenu v385

    if any other info is needed let me know,
    Im sorta at a loss at the moment.

    any help or ideas would be great.

    Preloader needs the ES_DiVerify (AKA ES_Identify) function to be patched in order to load the systemmenu, but it only patches IOS 60. You are running System Menu 3.4U, under IOS 50. Go into the preloader settings, and change the "System Menu IOS" to "60", then Save your settings.

    I'm asuming you already have IOS 60 installed.

    You said "ISO v50"?
    .ISO is most common filename extension for DVD backup image files, but:
    IOS is the system files used on thwe Wii (not ISO). Don't worry, A lot of new people make this ISO, IOS mistake.

    3.4U wont have IOS60 by default so unless the thread starter is going to upgrade he should be installing v0.28 of preloader and not v0.29 which is for 4.0 and above.
