Just a guess but I lay money on Brick my Wii stubbing IOS60 and it didn't show it's head until problems came up with the IOS61 install. Then when the wii was rebooted.... welll.... Black screen. What ever it was this thread should be tagged appropriately so that anyone searching for Pimp My Wii will hopefully find this one and not go any farther with it.
Craig, do as Streamlinehd has asked. It will help us find your problem. Since you can boot up into bootmii, then the chances of your wii being recovered are very high.
I don't think pimp my wii installs stubs, I could be wrong. Perhaps it tried to update to 4.2 and crashed on the way.
The op has boot2 bootmii from the description in post #1
Most likely reinstalling system ios and system menu will fix
to a formated sd and boot the wii, run the scan.
Check the installed system menu version, and ensure that the required ios is installed. Reinstall system ios and menu.
Verify that the region is detected, if region is unkown replace your settings.txt with CB2_BB_System-Settings-Replace_MOD.zip
Extract to sd:\
copy pal settings.txt to sd:\
boot the wii and replace
If all of that fails, get a gc controller and try savemiifrii, see if recovery menu loads. Test powering the wii on with the wiimote. If the wii does not power on with wiimote, your bt module could be bad.
Most likely system ios and menu install will fix you.
You can extract MMM_CB2.zip to sd:\
Extract cIOS60-v6174.zip to sd:\wad
extract (4.1e)-System Menu-NUS-v450.zip to sd:\wad
boot the wii, MMM loads
Press 1- Install all wads.

Thanks a million for the posts guys, i have just woken up here in the UK and i will follow your info religiously to try and get the info you require before i attempt to fix the problem.
I will let you all know in a few hours how it has worked out.
I will take a note pad and paper also and hopefully remember to take step by step notes.
Follow mauifrogs post exactly and you should be fine.
If you still cant get it running, there are plenty of options as you are fortunate in having bootmii as boot2. Basically, your console is 100% repairable without any question/doubt.
Ran the System Check and i have attached the CSV file of the report.
Going to move on to the next part of trying to get it back to working 100% now.
A further update that might be of use or not.
The Wii seems to be working fine so major Kudos on that guys.
We tried to load Priiloader 04 and this is what we got.
This was the same start of a chain of events that lead to the black screen last night.
Needless to say we aboted.
IOS 61 REV 5661
ES_Identify failed, Error 4294966279. IOS 61 not patched with ES_DIVerify? using CIOS (Holding B and Pressing + or - ) will probably solve this.
Do you wish to continue A=Yes. B=NO. Home/ Start = exit.
Bypass the error message by doing what I said above. Priiloader isn't the culprit it's the IOS you tried installing before Priiloader. It is important because it gives you another way to get out of a jamb other then Bootmii. It also blocks disc and internet updates from occurring.
