Wii ignores Boot.elf - Preloader can't find HBC
So I'm trying to install bootmii via the hackmii installer; only the wii is ignoring the boot.elf file on the root of my SD card when I load up the channels on it via the (wii) button as per the typical guides.
Also, preloader states it can't find HBC when I try to run it but it's accessible via the wii system menu.
The current state of my Wii is that it's soft modded, with DVDx, HBC, 4.1E (custom updated) and preloader 0.29.
So what I'd like to do is, install bootmii and hopefully get the preloader to be able to launch HBC. Thoughts?
