Pimp my Wii like many other All in One Installers has been known to cause problems and does so many changes by simply pressing the A button its hard for Wiihacks Staff and members to pinpoint where a Pimp My Wii user is having issues and why they dont support it .Just like any other System modification it is recommended to make sure you have a NAND backup from BootMii and Priiloader installed BEFORE you modify your system in any way.
It seems your Priiloader got Hosed when Pimp My Wii changed the System Menu and your old version of USB loader GX got hosed when Hermes v5 was installed by Pimp My Wii .So not necessarily issues with Pimp my Itself but you have to be careful what you install and ask yourself do i really need this and can I fix it if somting goes wrong .The Wii Hacks guides give you a slow and methodical way of modifyfing your wii and its easier to pinpoint where your system ran into issues .
So reinstall PriiLoader and either Update GX (or use WiiFlow) or downgrade to Hermes v4 .
Would you say it's super risky to use the tutorial here on wiihacks and downgrade my IOS70 in order to install Priiloader?

Thanks for your help, and any future help. I have invites for BCG and Demonoid I can offer if someone can help and the fix is successful.
I want to either reinstall priiloader, or reinstall hbc.... I recall when I did the pimp my wii, it told me i should install hbc again after the pimp my wii for some reason...
I have posted on the private tracker that wiihacks doesn't endorse Pimp My Wii, hopefully people take heed and stay away.
Fortunately, I can still access and play everything just fine, just a hassle to have to go through my system menu, then hbc to get to usb loader gx r938.
I previously has v928 as an installed priiloader file, so my wii would just boot straight to usb loader gx.
Would anyone have any ideas concerning the better avenue to take: reiinstalling priiloader, or reinstalled hbc?
You can just reinstall priiloader, you don't need to do anything with your ios prior to installing it.
THANKS so much mauifrog, was waiting on your input before I was to proceed. I will go ahead and install priiloader 0.4. Won't downgrade my IOS70 or make any changes, will just install 0.4.

Thanks all and Mauifrog, reinstalling priiloader worked just fine. Even installed gx r938 into priiloader and running that at boot... thanks much for the help.
Have you tried using an HBC forwarder, and setting Priiloader to boot directly to HBC?
