    Ca Bricked wii with bootmii installed "Failed to load IOS" error

    I've tried both ShadowSonic2's guide here and mauifrog's guide here and I've run into the issue where my wii just says "Failed to load IOS".

    Some info on my wii:
    Version: unkown, I tried booting with bootmiifrii and either the aftermarket controller didn't work for it or it just won't work on my console for some reason so I can't really determine this

    I know it has bootmii boot2 installed because the dvd drive flashes twice upon boot.

    It's a fairly early model wii (at least 3 years old).

    From what I gather I need to format the wii to solve the "Failed to load IOS" problem if neither of those guides work. But I cant find a guide here to do this process. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, GW2

    UPDATE:

    Okay so I got a NAND backup but after that I'm not really sure how to proceed with the above error. The SD card browser also wont gives me an error of "SD card could not be read" or something to that effect. also from the BootMii menu the wii button and homebrew channel buttons load a black screen.
