hackmii installer v1.2 hangs on warning screen
i'm following the "soft mod any wii" tutorial and unfortunately the wii keeps hanging on the hackmii scam warning screen. i've let it site there for over 60 minutes no so i don't think waiting any longer is going to help
here is the output from installer.log

Different SD card may help. Use a 2 gig, preferably Sandisk. Kingston worked for me as well. Make sure you do a full format of the sd card before trying the mod. A quick format doesnt always fix these issues.
I've tried 2 different SD cards now, both of them 2GB Sandisk's. I've only got a Mac and a PC running Windows 8, and I've tried formatting with both of them but wonder if perhaps I need an XP or Windows 7 machine. I'll give it another try and see how I go.

Thanks very much, I'll give all those a try in the morning. I've blown about 5 hours on this now, hopefully one of the options works for me

So here is what I'm thinking, what about if I connect the wii to the internet, upgrade to 4.3 and then use the letterbomb to install the HBC? I'm wondering if there is something wrong with the base IOS's and a refresh may help me out.
What do you think? Crazy? Would it restrict me in any way? All I really want is to get USB Loader running, at the moment we are using the original discs but we havve ruined so many of them in the past I just want to get the HDD Running.
Yep, done it. Using Wilbrand (not the 4.3 site) I get the letterbomb, click on it, the screen goes black for a split second, then I'm back at the main menu again.
