Bootmii wouldn't load up because you need the bootmii folder on your sd card. And it can be picky with what sd card you use. sd(not sdhc) and 2gb or less is what you need. Formatting the Wii didn't do anything but erase your game saves and your homebrew channel. Those 2 games need a little attention to get to work. You probably just needed to change the cIOS they load with in game settings of your loader.
I would suggest getting the correct sd card and start from the beginning of the softmod any wii guide.
