    first things first you need to get a game disk with a system menu update on it to get to FW3.2-4.2. not 4.3. then depending on what you go to follow one of the guides on here, theres a good one in the homebrew section which will do any wii from 3.2 right through to 4.3. use the search and you will find the answers you are after. read them right through and you cant go wrong.

    Has your wii got a mod chip in it? Cos using a burnt wii game anti going to work to update. With a mod chip or soft mod it can't read a dvdr disk burnt on your computer. You will need to buy,borrow or rent a retail game disk with the update on it. I think Mario kart is a safe bet. Update to 3.2 then follow the guide I talked about to get you to 4.1 safely and everything will work like a charm. With that being an older wii you will be able to install bootmii as boot2 which means after you do a NAND backup you will be almost 100% brick proof, follow the guide and read right through before you start

    Just seen your post you can just change the drive but if you had a modded drive how and why did you brick your first wii?

    Another thing I've noticed you say the wii is 2.1e but you paidfor it in " bucks" I.e. Dollars, does this mention your in America or oz? Make sure you get your regions right when you update and mod
