    OK, it that the preloader version I gave you 0.29? I hope.

    But you are saying that the boot.dol actually activated HBC installer-so somewhere along the line, boot.dol files got mixed up.

    Clear the SD card and do the steps I outline in Post #29 and 66. There's a stray boot.dol somewhere where it doesn't belong. So clean up the SD and go again if we can. Where are we with regard to your Wii menu?

    You said you were stuck at some 1.01 HBC installer. Are you now saying that you actually did run the preloader installer?

    If so, your HBC version may be causing a problem if you did indeed install HBC version 1.01. Did you?

    I'm trying to get you to locate that homebrew install .dol or .elf file and remove it so we can see what we have going with that Wii. When we started, you had a working HBC, you used Wad Manager to successfully (I hope) install IOS60patched, FW 4.1, and now you reported that you did install preloader from my link.

    The remaining problem is some interference with a HBC installer, so find it delete it and let's see if your system has been corrupted before we even started, because nothing we did here was a problem. I hope if we get rid of this installer, we should have a working Wii, only impediment is what we started with-I am uncertain of that.

    If preloader has been installed, only thing we need on that SD is Apps folder with only Wad Manager folder; and an empty Wad folder. Keep hacks.ini file as we haven't set the hacks up yet. That's it. Do that. Power off Wii, unplug it. then start up again with that clean card-no GC stuff, no disc just that clean SD.

    And the screen you see is NOT the preloader menu (HBC, system menu, settings, system hacks, file install). You are being returned to a screen that says nothing but HBC 1.01 installer. If so, I am now stumped. Turn off and wait for a follow-up post. I will ask a more senior moderator if they understand why an installer would persist like this. Do not do anything else as I will be providing the other mod an historical review up to the point of the consultation.
