By no NAND backup, does this mean no BootMii installed either? There are like four or five stickied threads in this section with regard to what recovery options, if any, are available to you.
I do not know what happened to my Wii kids did something when gone, got BSOD. FW 3.2U and original wii launch model. I can manage to get to the recovery menu but chip was not set to autoboot and no priiloader and of course no backup NAND. Is it possible to restore the DVD drive or system menu (I'm assuming that corrupt system menu is likely the culprit as I can get to recovery menu with savemii) by putting drive in working system?
Thought it might be bluetooth module so replaced that and still BSOD. I am reluctant to buy new autoboot chip or reinstall as I really have no way of knowing what happened or whether it can be fixed an Id rathenon booting chip just replace the drive with new board and softmod to usb HDD.
I was wondering if can put in working Wii (I hav black Wii with 4.2us softmodded) to update with newer real game or save somehow?
Any suggestions to see if wii can be saved would be appreciated.
Do you have bootmii installed?
If so, you can use cb2 dopmii to reinstall whats needed or to run the nand formatter.
as its a launch Wii you could flash bootmii with nand programmer then use the nand formatter/wad manager.
Also, you could try just using an original game with a higher update.
Allright, try the following:
- Download this file: Bootmii_folder-U
- Extract it and place it on the root of your SD card.
- Put SD card in the wii.
- Start the wii.
- If your screen looks like this, you are lucky and you can use this guide to fix your wii: Fully Brick, Bootmii/boot2 installed but No Nand Backup? Solution Here!
- If your screen remains black, use this guide: NAND programming- Low Level Brick recovery without bootmii

No Bootmii installed, forgot to mention...thanks for the suggestions. i will try bliepo suggestion when i get home. i was hoping could pop in other wii to restore if possible but if can not i will not bother.
Its not the drive that is at fault, its the motherboard and no you cant just pop it into another.
