    Yes that's right, after backing up the Nand with bootmii move on to chapter two (again, it says this in the guide).
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Also, the Hackmii_0.8 link in "Other desperate options" in Chapter 1 leads to a picture of a cat (bootmii readme reference?). Unless I missed some, all of the other download links lead to the correct page.

    PS: What's with the extra .zip extension?
    The links have been updated. Let me know if anything else appears out of place.

    It is perfectly fine to have no bad blocks on the scan; up to 80 bad blocks is acceptable. Most brand-new unused Wiis either have no or very few bad blocks. If you already created a backup of your Wii's NAND, you probably just did as the message stated and overwrote the NAND.bin and key.bin files on your SD card. No harm done by that step; you just backed up your NAND all over again. You do want to copy your bootmii files, and the NAND.bin and key.bin files to somewhere safe (backup to your PC HDD, burn to CD disk, etc) in case you need them in the future.

    To answer your first question, yes it is good that you no bad blocks (which is something I have never seen). It would have been okay if you had several. Here is a quote from bootmii.org/faq/
    Why do I have all of these "bad blocks"? Can I fix them?

    This is completely normal; in order to bring down the price of NAND flash chips, all manufacturers will allow chips to leave the factory with a small number of bad blocks. It's similar to bad pixels in LCD panels -- it would be too expensive to throw away the whole panel (or in this case, the whole chip) due to a few bad pixels. With NAND flash, software usually remaps these blocks so you don't even notice, but BootMii works at the lowest level possible so we have to take these into consideration when writing our code. There are 4096 blocks; according to the flash chip manufacturer, at least 4016 blocks are valid (in other words, up to 80 blocks may be bad). Reference: datasheet, page 19

    Now about your backup. Since "Reset" = "Select", you re-selected Bootmii Backup. It won't hurt anything, it just means you have to wait again. Once it is done, press "Power" instead.

    Edit: Oops, gen3sf beat me to it.

    You want to power up the Wii while holding down the reset button. In other words, you installed Priiloader; now turn off the Wii. Hold down the reset button on the Wii console and turn it back on while holding that reset button down. The Priiloader menu should appear after the Wii boots up again.

    To minimize a future problem, do NOT perform the optional step of installing DARKCORP, ok?

    thats great yes I did not want to do that, am I right in saying the load/install autoboot options are also not needed and once I have disabled the block disk and online updates I can turn off the wii and then begin the final step,

    thankyou for all the help
