    do you have preloader? (Hold reset when you power on to bring it up if you have it)

    or bootmii installed as boot2? (Your dvd light will flash twice quickly when you power on if you have it)

    edit: And I'm pretty sure your modchip has to be configured to auto boot for the update disc trick to work.

    Did the person recently install any wads or channels that could have been bad? I think you'd benefit from taking a look at this: http://www.wiihacks.com/bricked-wii-...brick-fix.html

    edit: I just put 2 and 2 together and realized that your problem is preloader doesn't work with 3.4. Follow the link above to work it out

    I would stick with 3.4 and worry about updating after. Here's links to:

    IOS50: IOS50-64-v4889.wad

    and 3.4U: SystemMenu-NTSCU-v385.rar

    (thanks to Tealc cause I stole the links from him)

    but you really need to talk to the owner to rule this out:

    Warnings:
    If you recently installed a wad, usually for a custom channel of some sort, WiiWare, or VC title, do not follow this guide. You are likely bannerbricked, and this is not for you. If you can see the health screen, you are likely bannerbricked as well. You must uninstall the bad banner to fix your issue.

    The following procedure will reinstall your system ios and system menu, removing preloader/priiloader in the process. If it fails to fix your issue, you will no longer have a functional preloader/priiloader to work with.
