    Now this isn't very direct, as it's not my wii, it's a friend of mine, but basically when he turns it on, he told me it just takes like, 5 mins. to boot up before it starts. Anyway ideas why this could be?

    Safely updated with hacked 4.2 firmware.

    Does you friend have BootMii installed to boot2? If yes, what happens if he boots without sd card inserted?

    He doesn't, I'll get him to install it and get back to you.

    I know it's probably stupid but could the Wii be loading an emulated Wii (from the SD card in the Wii)?
