**Moved to Brick Issue**
Do you have bootmii/boot2 installed? If not sure check for double quick flash when you start you Wii.
Asides from that you can try savemiifrii.
Plug a gamecube controller in Port4
Hold down Up, Down, Left, Right on the D-Pad (may have to remove pin under D pad)
Power on the Wii.
You should get a text display bottom right 4.2(xxx) where xxx is your region.
