You were missing IOS. Each game uses a specific IOS version and revision to run.
Any disc update carries a bunch of IOS revisions which are checked against your Wii. If any revisions on the disc are higher than your Wii it will trigger an update by disc, this does not necessarily mean you get a new system menu update.
If a game comes along and the update is removed/blocked and the IOS is needs is not on your Wii then it black screens.
Updating using Drawn obviously installed a few IOS revisions that satisfy the other games needs.
