Did you check Priiloader's settings? There's like BOOT TO:, RETURN TO:, etc. If you at one point had a boot.dol somewhere and it was pointing to this, that is a possible explanation. More things to look at in this thread.

please, there is an edit button if you want to add information.
so it would be helpful to know what the last action on your wii was... like installing a bad .wad which caused you a bannerbrick (which is different to your sittuation).
did you fix it already by reinstalling the systemmenu and systemmenu IOS using the guide?
this error on a way to a brick can be serious, when you have a corrupted systemmenu or sysmenu IOS. you are lucky that priiloader is still working and you can use it to reinstall a fresh systemmenu.
When you fail (like not doing the guide step by step) you can end up fully bricked, with a corrupt systemmenu installation and priiloader most likely gone from the attemp to install it freshly.
In any case always have a working NAND backup kept in a safe place on your PC.
hi people ive fixed my wii thx now should i restore my priiloader or downgrade to 3.2/4
yes, restore priiloader.
4.1 is a good systemmenu version to sit on.
maybe you want to run through the softmod any wii guide to set you up perfectly (linked below).
