    Maybe bricked?

    Hello

    For some days ago i was sitting and played FIFA10 on my Wii using softmode USB loader. It all whent ok. Got tired and whent to sleep, couldnt sleep so i decided to play some Mega Man (WAD) before i re-tried to sleep.
    It worked perfect.

    The day after when i did turn on my Wii i did get the first screen as always but when i press "A" to continue nothing happens. The screen turns black.

    I did let the screen be black for almost 25min before i gave up and shutdown the Wii.

    Have googled alot but i think i did use the wrong search word and didnt found any info on how to fix it.

    Also one more thing, before i started to play FIFA i did go to the SD to run USB Loader but something didnt seemd right there, it toke almost 15second before the SD logo pop up and 10 more seconds before i did see the Apps on my SD drive.

    Anyone suggestions on what to do?

    EDIT: Forgott to tell you that i did install a WAD file after playing Mega Man, so i guess that the WAD had wrong settings. Also i cannot enter the + - screen on the Health Screen

    have you got preloader (hold reset when you turn your wii on)?

    or bootmii (put your SD card with bootmii files on into your wi before you switch it on?

    No preloader, i think i have bootmii installed. I dont remember if i did install it.
    Did copy the bootmii files from bootmii to my SD and started the wii up but nothing happend. The Health screen comes and when pressing A it goes all back

    This is how my SD looks like now
    SD:\WiiLoad\
    SD:\boot.elf
    SD:\Credits
    SD:\License
    SD:\README-BootMii.txt
    SD:\README-HBC.txt

    Those aren't the bootmii files.

    boot.elf is probably hackmii installer and the rest is significant.

    Bootmii files are:-

    SD:\bootmii\armboot.bin
    SD:\bootmii\ppcboot.elf
    SD:\bootmii\bootmii.ini

    There are two types of bootmii install:-

    boot2 - written to the booting section of Wii NAND and can be launched before anything else on the Wii.

    IOS - Launched through HBC and loads after the System Menu.

    When installed it would have asked to format an SD card and would have created the files for you. I have a copy in my mediafire, click my sig and look under Unbricking for my bootmii folder. It's for a PAL system.

    Really sorry for taking your time people (thanks Tealc for giving you my time)

    If i create a new SD what else should be on the SD drive?

    SD:\bootmii\armboot.bin
    SD:\bootmii\ppcboot.elf
    SD:\bootmii\bootmii.ini

    anything else?

    That'll indicate boot2 for you.

    Also you can check for dual DVD drive led flash, flash..0.75 seconds..flash.
