We need more information. Such as the directory where the boot.dol/elf is, and what it is for.
4.2 version, boot.dol/elf does not start up when sd card is entered
any suggestions, thanks

I assume you are trying to run the hackmii installer?
- Make Sure WiiConnect24 Is Off
- Use a 2GB or less SD Card. NO SDHC Cards. Full Formatted to FAT32. (Sandisk 2GB Regular SD Is Recommend)
- Try Alternate Versions of BannerBomb
System Menu 4.2 --> BannerBomb V2
System Menu 3.1-4.1 --> Bannerbomb V1
Damn I suck!!!!
Maybe a dumb question but are you just putting the boot.dol and boot.elf on the root of your sd card? If so, you need to run the homebrew installer with bannerbomb as Krank listed above. Bannerbomb will show as a folder on your sd card named private. Check to make sure you have this folder on your sd card as you can not load a boot.dol or boot.elf without it. Since you are on system menu 4.2 download bannerbomb v2.
i have a refurbish Wii, got it yesterday right out of the box, has system version 4.2u, ive downloaded the 4.2 update from this site use the instructions to put on sd card follow instructions to install on wii and once wii is on click sd on bottom left put card in to start reading and nothing happens
bannerbomb v 2 here copy the private folder to the root of your sd card then retry.
ok i installed bannerbomb v2, the private folder to root of sd card, went back thru the process of reading the card on Wii then i get an error
an error has occurred
the system files are currupted
Sounds like you have 4.3... Bannerbomb does not work with 4.3. Double check your SM Version and follow the appropriate guide.
Damn I suck!!!!
sorry for the hasle, it is 4.3u i could have swore i seen 4.2u yesterday when i check it, thanks i shall start over now using 4.3u
