Had my drive repaired..now..
Firstly, I was running a wiikey v2. Desoldered it and sent my drive off for repair. During that time, I softmodded the wii by following the tutorial here and am running bootmii as boot2 + preloader 0.3. Wii boots up fine WITHOUT the DVD drive attached. When I have it hooked up, the wii takes forever to boot up and when it gets to the systemmenu, there is a loud hissing noise coming out over the speakers and I can NOT enter any channels. The only way to access HBC is through bootmii.
Any suggestions on this?
Don't mean to bump but I managed to take some videos.
Still no changes. Any ideas?
