Original retail game is required (or modchip)
Is there some other way? NO
Can I bannerbomb? NO
Format your sd-card, If you have issues try formatting with this tool
Extract to SD:
Requires a standard SD card, 1-2g scandisk is best. SDHC cards will not work.

If you FAIL, try try try again

Stupid questions will probably result in stupid answers.
Read the guide a few times, and the advise, suggestions, and experiences of others BEFORE asking for help!!!

NEVER UPDATE YOUR WII FROM NINTENDO- read the forum and do it yourself
Note: Prilloader installer gives two errors-
This is not an issue, and is expected

Optional priiloader settings-
Autoboot to HBC- Click settings, set auto-boot and return to HBC. Your wii now boots to HBC.
Autoboot to USBloader-GX- click load/install, install usbloader-gx.dol, goto settings, set autoboot/return to installed file. Your boots into usbloader-gx. This is great for kids.
You can auto-boot to any app you like.

Step* Optional- DARKCORP installation: Join the Dark Side of the wii!!!
DARKCORP enables backup disks to be loaded from the wii disk channel, without using a loader.
Newer wiis may not support DVD media, this will not fix this limitation.

Download DARKCORP_v1.1_Full.zip, extract to sd:
Read the READ-ME first, install from HBC
Use IOS249 to Install/Upgrade Darkcorp 1.1, and Wiigator’s or Waninkoko’s cmios for gc-games
DARKCORP can used in conjunction with usb loading methods
USB loading is faster and is the general preferred method

Step* Possible- Reinstall HBC (if inverted)
Reinstall HBC if screen is up side down
Load HBC, Launch Hackmii Installer
Install HBC

Final Step- Clean Up SD-Card
To Prevent accidental System modification
Backup and Format the SD-CARD
ExtractClean-SD-Card.zip to sd:
This will prevent your kids, friends, wife, and yourself from doing stupid stuff.
