    Hackmii will not load through SD card

    Hi guys, wondering if anyone can help me out here.

    I've modded quite a few wiis in my time, but I got stuck with my friend's wii. For some odd reason, when I try to use bannerbomb to install HBC, the boot.dol just does not seem to load.

    Here are the steps I went through:
    -Extracted the usual files to SD card (2gb Kingston which has worked on many other wiis)
    - wii settings- data managment- channels- SD
    - It just shows the blank screen with the number of empty blocks.

    Couldn't quite figure out why. I believe my friend's wii already has a hardmod on it so it can run backup games through disc. And I also recalled a way of installing the bannerbomb through a backup disc but can't seem to find that method any more.

    Any idea if this can still be done? Or if not, any other ideas on how can get the boot.dol to load?

    Appreciate any help!!

    Just to add one here, the wii system menu says 3.2U, but i see jap wordings when you press the "home" key, so i'm guessing someone has changed the region settings before.

    what's ur friends wii version ?
    as Wii's may be different, there're versions of bannerbomb files for u to try,
    providing the sd card is functionally ok.
    hardmod shall not bother with bannerbomb execution.

    Its a 3.2U, and I'm using the v1 version as listed in PART 1 of this guide.

    I've tried it with 2 different SD cards which I usually use on other wiis, but none seem to work

    My bad, all the while I thought those "alternatives" were just mirror sites to download the v1 file, didn't realise that it was alternate files.

    Worked when I used "D". Thank you!!!

    Thank you for your replies.
    To all those who helped..I THANK YOU! Since I didn't have a spare HDD at the moment I ended up trying one more thing.. I installed the Wanikoko 249 cIOS and boom no more freezing and I got an invalid FAT partition error but it allowed me to pick a partition manually.

    I picked the NTFS partition and my games loaded normally

    I played a few games and everything seems to be working fine
