    HALT! You must have missed where he said noob. If he updates to the wrong system menu he will lose preloader and will be really screwed

    what version of firmware were you on, if it was lower than 3.2 ( i think you will only get a black screen) with the GC controler

    If you have bootmii installed as boot2 there is an easier and more successful solution. Does your dvd drive flash twice when you power on the wii or only once? If it's twice then you have boot2.

    When you start preloader, what ios and system menu version is displayed. Did you update or install any wads prior to the black screen? Don't install anything yet.

    thanks for the quick response, sorry for the delay had to go out.
    I dont recall doing anything before it died it seemed to be working ok last time it was on. I dont know what the firmware was before i started messing with it sorry for the lack of info i havnt really got a clue what im doing think i should have left it well alone.

    I think i have boot2,
    in the settings in bootmii i have

    SysMenu 4.1E boot1b boot2v3

    if that helps

    in preloader v0.29
    IOS v60
    Systemmenu v450

    i appolagise again for my lack of knowledge any help is greatly appreciated

    Put wadmanager boot.dol onto the root of your sd-card
    place ios60patched.wad and system-menu-v450.wad (4.1e right?) into sd:\wads
    load preloader
    load wadmanager
    install patched ios60
    install system menu v450
    Then reinstall preloader- you may want to try priiloader
