    BootMii not loading on startup

    Hello,

    I have installed bootmii to boot2. I have prepared an SD card, which puts the following three files into /SD/bootmii/: armboot.bin, bootmii.ini and ppcboot.elf.

    I also have the original boot.elf at /SD/Apps/BootMii. When I start my machine I receive the two flashes from the drive and no sign of the BootMii menu. My Wii is a 2007 model, so it shouldn't be hardware-related. It is running system menu 3.2u, downgraded from 4.0.

    I have also just tried using it as an IOS and that loads successfully. Does that rule out the possibility that it is caused by an incompatible SD card?

    What can I do to get Bootmii working?

    This is my first post! *Waves*

    Thanks.

    Got help from jarsonic on the official bootmii IRC room. The problem was specific to beta2 and is a known bug. Using beta1 now.

    The problem is a bug listed on their website. Beta2, for some as-yet unkown reason, eliminated compatibility for some Kingston cards. I'm hoping this will be fixed for beta3.

    FS#125 : SD Card worked with beta1 but not more with beta2 of BootMii

    Is this still an issue? I have a Sandisk 2GB and it doesn't boot from SD when installed to boot2. If I install to IOS that will work?

    I believe I am running the latest Beta on my Wii with the same memory card I was having issues with. So, for me at least, the latest Beta fixed the issue.
