    When preloader loads, what ios and system menu is displayed- if it says ios50 your in a lot of trouble.

    I am sorry Ios 50 is very very bad. If you go back to the guide and tell me why your in this mess, I will tell you how to fix it. It is linked below. Also need to know what the system menu version # is.

    That is the million dollar question

    Ios50 is bad because ios50 = system menu 3.4

    It means that you missed this warning in the guide here.
    If you are on 3.3 or 3.4 then you must update now - DO NOT install priiloader until you have updated as it will cause untold problems!.
    This is bad because preloader does not support system menu 3.4, this is why you could not boot the wii on ios50, and the change to ios36 is only a bandaid and is probably causing issues. So preloader needs to be removed and the wii needs to be upgraded to 4.1, then preloader is reinstalled.

    You can do this by placing wadmanagers boot.dol on the root of your sd-card
    You need to download IOS50 v4889 and place in sd:\wads
    You need to download system menu 3.4. wad in your region and place in sd:\wads
    3.4u
    3.4e
    3.4j
    You then hold reset and boot the wii
    Preloader will start
    click load/instal
    load boot.dol
    wadmanager starts
    use ios249
    install ios50
    then
    install system menu 3.4
    then
    goto 3.1-4.1 guide linked below
    Install the patchedios60, upgrade to 4.1, reinstall priiloader

    That should fix it.

    Forgive my sarcasm , I am half way thru my six pack and have been answering this question all week. All in good fun, hope this helps.

    Preloader will be removed with the installation of the system menu wad. Just follow the steps above.

    It should not matter, but the boot ios should be ios50 so if you like, you can change it.
