    Problems with Restoring the NAND with RestoreMii

    Hi All I am having a problem with my bootmii install.
    I haven't bricked it yet but s0ur told me to test out everything that I had set up and a error came up.
    I got a back-up or my NAND ok but when I went to try restoring it I had a problem. RestoreMii seems to think that I do not have a proper install of bootmii, I think that it is looking for it as boot2 but I installed it as IOS because that was the only way possible on my Wii(Which is 4.2U).
    Here is the error:
    RestoreMii NAND ID: addc1095
    Checking boot2
    BootMii is not found, too dangerous to
    continue! If your SD is corrupt or
    restore is interrupted, you will be
    unable to boot to fix it. If you are
    SURE you want to do this, KONMAI.
    Otherwise, press [Z] to give up.
    I don't have a gamecube controller so I had to figure out which buttons actually did things, I press Power and it said this:
    Try harder Hashimoto-san!
    I do not understand what to do next.

    Doing a NAND restore with only BootMii/IOS install is particularly dangerous and not recommended. Doing this can cause a brick that you won't be able to get out of. Does your Wii work as-is, meaning what issue are you hoping to solve? This is rather extreme and only should be done if after exhausting all other possible fixes.

    I have no errors yet but I was testing my system so that way if it errors in the future I know the fix will work.
    Also I have no other way of installing bootmii.

    BootMii/IOS, there's no such thing as a solid-lock curative, your best bet is Priiloader which prevents the most common bricks in the first place (that and remember never to uninstall an IOS < 200). Always good to have the NAND backup, but a NAND restore via BootMii? Not the order of the day...
