    Thanks everyone for the input. I didn't have any other choice than formatting the nand and starting from scratch. I sent a PM to the owner asking if he wanted me to continue trying to recover the save games (which I believe is very possible) or just send it back to him as is.

    The original nand obviously had major issues and indicated by my post and the thread started by the owner that I linked above.

    Thank you all for trying to help.

    Possibly you could save his files by just running the 4.1 update, but not format the NAND.bin

    You are flashing his nand.bin to another nand. You likely have a bad block on your new nand that lands within ios36 or some other important file.

    This is very common when trying to swap nands

    So do bad blocks only have such an affect if you are using a "foreign" nand? I've never heard of someone not being able to use an IOS because of a bad block, and that would make having a few bad blocks (which almost every Wii does) a very big deal.

    Yes, on the original nand there wouldnt be any data of use. Bad blocks are mapped around, so they are not an issue

    I had a long day yesterday so I didn't have time or the energy to put into the Wii. I will try to reinstall all the IOSs and SM using the nand editor and see how it goes. If that doesn't work then I will try to recover the saves games by following some steps I found on a wiibrew.

    No matter what I tried, I couldn't get the original nand to boot. I created one to recover. After some googling I was able to find the games saves and the Miis inside the extracted bootmii dump from the original nand. I was able to restore all of his Miis by using a hex editor but he will have to restore the games himself because the games need to be played before they are able to be restored.

    Thanks all for the advice.
