okay. to be thorough I formatted my sd card, put fresh bootmii directory (as indicated before). made fresh format of my nand.bin, applied 4.3u, set the serial from I found in unmodded nand.bin, also applied metdata?
nand.bin indicated as restored without issue.
I tried to help myself to find this bootmini.elf. I've seen you indicate to others many times to use Hackmii_0.8_bootmini.zip, but the link(s) are erroring with a not found.
thanks, and sorry for being a pain.
woops. took another look around. I found the hackmii_installer_v1.0 package from bootmii.org which contains a bootmin.elf. is this the correct file set to use?
That is the one, put bootmini.elf on sd:\
load bootmii and select the sd loader, load bootmini.elf
Install the hbc, then do chapter 2 and 3 of the softmod guide.
with what else on the card?
right now it only has the bootmii folder with armboot, bootmii and ppcboot.
I put the bootmini.elf on this card. when I activate bootmini, the blue light just flashes...
Just those, your bootmii folder to load bootmii and the bootmini.elf.

I assume the wii is otherwise working yes.
If the blue light flashes something is wrong with your sd card files. You need to be able to load bootmii to run the bootmini.elf. So if that is giving you trouble, try to format the card and put the files back on. Or just use letterbomb.
I can get into bootmii. trying bootmini gives flashing.
but no, otherwise is not working. was hoping to get a warm and fuzzy health warning, but powering on the wii with no card gives blank.
feels like we've been on a wild goose chase here.
make a new nand dump and compare it with your old one using nandbincheck. The wii should be booting if the nand restore completed well.
thanks, but I'm throwing in the towel on this unit.
