I stuck on D7. After i install priiloader, i do what you say (reset) and it just goes to the Wii System Menu with all the channels. Ive tryed this 4 times but get the same. Im 100000% sure that ive done the rest correctly. I cant access the priiloader menu. Thanks.

I just installed preloader and when I reset it wouldn't go to the preloader menu so I turned the wii off and held down the reset button while turning the wii back on and the menu came up no problem. See if that works.

Thanks mate. I was worried about doing that just incase it would brick my console as it says do the reset thing if its bricked. But just done it, and it works. Thanks matey.

Is there a possibility to "reset" my console to be "virgin" again and then to follow the guide I found here?
My console has a 4.2e sistem menu and it has been softmoded by a guy but I can't load saved games.
I looked for another question similar to mine but I didn't find it.
Can anyone help me with this? Or is there another way to solve this problem?

so with a bit of running back and forth to computer and trying to find a guide that made sense this one was it... and i checke3d out a lot of guides but they did not make sense like this one did. The only part of the guide i got stuck on and had to researcha bit more was backing up my nand. when i prepared the sd card and popped it in the wii the wii did not do anything at first .. but then i turned wii off and then turned back on and the nand came up. i had 3 bad blocks in it but it verified the copy and put it on my sd card and i copied it to my computer with no issues at all.
i am a bit dissapointed with the lack of speed i am getting from the iso files i am tryiong to get haha but that a different issue..
Awesome guide and thanks..

Some pointers from my experience...
First off, a BIG Thanks to Messie for his guide. I successfully mod my 4.2U Wii last night following it but not without some mis-steps which I thought worth sharing.
HBC installed but froze after "success". I reset the Wii and proceeded to install DVDX and the same thing happened. Again reset the Wii, and Bootmii froze during install at the point of creating the Bootmii folder. Turned out that I had a problem with my 2GB SD card's write protection and the Wii could not write to it. I started over with a another SD card (8GB) and everything went fine.
Lessons learnt: Make sure your SD card is not "locked". Also, discovered that 4.2U reads 8GB SD cards fine (I read somewhere that earlier versions had a 2GB limit).
NAND Backup went without a hitch; on my Wii, I used the Power button to move the cursor and Reset button to select.
PARTs B and C installed uneventfully, successfully removed the stub ios249 at the first attempt and did a network install of ios249rev14.
I copied the entire contents of the first rar file from Part A back into the SD. Turned out that was a mistake. You only need the "apps" and "wad" folders (yes, Messie did say to delete everything else, my bad!). The result was that ios70 or something (memory a little fuzzy here) would not install as the installer could not mount the SD card. Erasing the extra files and folders solved the problem.
After installing Priiloader, the system restarted but did not take me to the Priiloader menu. I did a few resets and even went as far as to reinstall Priiloader but still no luck. Went to google Priiloader and read that one could get to the Priiloader settings menu by holding down the reset button when turning on the Wii. That did it. One cool thing which I found in the settings was the option to Remove No Copy Save File - with that enabled, I was able to backup my Mariokart Save File, just in case something happens with my Wii, I can hopefully use the backup to recover all the stuff I have unlocked
So, there you have it. My 2 cents to hopefully prevent others from making the same mistakes. Enjoy mod-ing your Wii, it's easier than I had expected, thanks again to Messie for his good work!

I get into HBC and lauch Priiloader and tried both keeping B down and pressing +, and only + but in both cases when I reset I get back to the wii menue and not to the Priiloader menu.
Do you know how to install the Priiloader?
Thank you very much for your help!!!
