    Looks like this doesn't load Syscheck and henc no CSV file on the SD card.
    I've done some reading on this error. It seems that there is some back and forth on the fix. Some say that changing the SD card will work but you tried that. Others say to use Comex's NAND formatter which I suggest you do. You can do that by following this guide. Make absolutely sure that you back up your current nand as the guide says, even though it is corrupt (just in case). It will wipe out all of your Mii's and game saves but it is possible to extract them from the backup that you will make.

    I would use the nand.bin formater instead of comix formater.

    Used Comex's NAND formatter. First time I got a message that the task was done.The WII didn't reboot.Second time , it completed,rebooted and I configured this like a new WII.Then followed the guide to install the rest of the IOS's and Channels by downloading the Ios pack for use with nand formatter.This completed.But then got a Black screen.When the WII reboots, it goes to BootMI(with te SDCard in).Else , black screen.

    Tried this a few times with different SD Cards too.Same result.

    Forgot to mention earlier : The WII is an american WII . The SM on old NAND.BIN Ithat has been backed up) was a 4.1U. So, I am trying to bring it back to 4.1U and then install HBC,USB Loader etc. Is this correct ?

    I am reading up on ohneswanzenegger (Wii Entry -- PC Software) - GBAtemp.net. May be I will give this option a go.

    The fact that you said it was on 4.1E to begin with and somehow got 4.1U installed on it and with the error you where getting with cBoot2 made me think that you did have a software issue that kept it from booting. I am now going to to my original thought as I said in post #4. You most likely have a bad bluetooth module. You can get a replacement module from eBay. I is a fairly simple fix if you are handy with a screwdriver. If you decide to attempt this replacement yourself you will also need a triwing screwdriver which can also be purchased from eBay.

    Once it is replaced you can reload the NAND backup you should have made before the first time you used the formatter to get your Wii back to the state it was at before.

    Will try as suggested.

    But the question on my mind is this : The problem I had was with the WII not booting into the system Menu.The WII boot into BOOTMI,but NOT into the system menu.Do you think that the replacement of the bluetooth module would solve this.I thought(naively) that the bluetooth module might help solve connectivity issues between console and WIIMOTES. Correct me if I am wrong.

    What happens if you turn the Wii on without the sd card in?

    No connectivity with the remotes, not being able to boot into the System Menu but the ability to start Bootmii/boot2 are classic symptoms of a bad bluetooth module. Your Wii threw me for a loop with the cBoot2 error you were getting and the fact that you said it started out on 4.1E. That's why we went down the road we did.

    Well i might not be of help but when formatting and sd card, select "Full format". This fixes alot of sd erros. It helped alot of people that i have helped in the past.
