have you tried formatting the card?
I installed Bootmii with the new hackmii installer and all went well. I reset the wii and it froze on blackscreen for about 45 seconds and then went to sysmenu. I figured my card was not compatible, no big deal. But now even after I take the files off the SD card and have it in the wii it still takes almost a minute to boot sysmenu. Even with nothing on the card almost a minute to boot. Bootmii works fine off another card. any ideas, is it supposed to be like this?
Yeah I formatted it twice, and tried it completely blank. same. The wii boots just fine without any card and then I can slide it in once booted and use normally. for what ever reason the card makes the wii take 45 to a minute to boot it would seem.
Thanks for the help.
I'm just gonna get a new sd card and see if it works. Too bad about my old card. I have no idea what went wrong for it to get screwed up.
I'll post back once I have another card.

Bootmii is very specific about what cards it works with, stick to brand name like Sandisk etc.

Press at the bottom right of the post if this response was of any assistance.
I just got a SanDisk 2Gb microSD w/ adapter I'm gonna try it later. Don't know what I'll do with the 2Gb that now doesn't work with my wii after Bootmii. Kind of a bummer there.
Just used the new card. All is well, got a good nand backup now. I have the Bootmii config set to boot sysmenu after one second, and works good. Strange the old card works just like the new one except the old one wouldn't boot for about 45 seconds using the same config file. I am going to do some more testing with the old card still. But for all intents and purposes I am good to go now.

FYI, for those who are on system menu 3.2 and a modchip:
DVDx requires patchmii installed to create a custom IOS254. It is this IOS that conflicts with the bootmii as IOS install.
The problem is: bootmii as an IOS installs as IOS254: thus blocking wii64 from executing correctly: It when selected under this circumstance loads: you guessed it: bootmii.
So I have to choose between appropriate DVDx function on version 3.2U OR bootmii as IOS: which seems to be useless as an IOS anyway for brick protection
Anyone know if bootmii can go in as another IOS?
I've had the same problem with one of my sd cards, an ativa 4 gig sdhc, that also causes the bootup to hang, and bootmii won't show. but if i use another card to load bootmii, it can then read the "bad" card. I have a feeling it's just the card itself. What card did you have?
I have an sandisc sdhc that works without a problem in bootmii... maybe that's the exception... i hadn't heard about that, thanks
I think bootmii is incompatibile with SDHC the same way it doesn't work with wiimotes. Just because it loads BEFORE any other IOS. For example before IOS60 that has sdhc support.
Am i correct??
