    what do you mean by preloader 'acting weird'?

    preloader doesnt just act weird and kill your system menu.

    What exactly did you do before it died?

    You should have installed the main IOS for your system menu first and then the System Menu wad. e.g. For 4.0 IOS60 then System Menu v418.

    You've probably wiped preloader as that's keyed to your Main system IOS.

    Good way to brick your Wii I suppose.

    Bootmii installed as boot2 would be mighty handy for you right now. Your only other option would be savemii/savemiifrii but that's unlikely to work as it relies on IOS.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
