this guide will talk about how to fix the Black screen of death. This is supposing that it's because there's no operating system or a corrupt system, so let's begin.

What you need:

-an SD card, use a small sized SD card, 2 GB recommended.
-a Nintendo Wii(w/ usual cords and stuff
-a computer
-access to the internet( on the PC, and Wii
-An internet browser
-a GAMECUBE CONTROLLER

optional:

-a game made after 2009, for eshop, weather channel,etc.

Step one: download the files on this website http://www.wiihacks.com/showthread.php?t=60362

step two: download the files. you need winrar for this. extract the files and open SettingEdit.

step 3: Specify info about your wii.

-select your region(ex: USA,EUR,JAP,etc.)
-insert model number(just change the region in the text
EX: if you live in the USA, paste this. RVL-001(USA). If you live in Europe, paste this. RVL-001(EUR).
-enter your serial number(not required, but recommended)
-select Video mode( ex:PAL,NTFS)
-select game region(ex:EUR,USA,JAP)
-press save after filling out the info

step 4: put the files from the folder the application made and put it in the root of your SD card( add the Setting.txt to the root as well)

step 5: EJECT your sd card

step 6:put the sd card in the wii( make sure it's off)

step 7:turn on the wii

-once you turn on, you will be greeted with a screen like this

-in bootmii, the power button is to scroll, and reset to select

optional step(recommended): scroll to the settings tab, and click it

Step 5: once complete the wii will reboot. then you will be greeted by the factory setup.

you are done, but there is one more step(completely optional)

when you first boot up your wii, you will not see any app, except fot the disk channel.

to fix this, insert a game made after 2009, and it will ask you to update

MAKE SURE YOU ARE CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET\

you will see that the wii says system update

Wait so is there any situation that would prevent this from working? Software of course because I bricked a wii a while back... I still have it. It has BootMii installed as IOS

You probably meant to show something else, but instead you linked the same picture 3 times in a row. Try again.

This guide only works if you have bootmii installed as an IOS(and that that IOS isn't corrupted) or as boot2.

Anyways, there's probably a much better way to do this; assuming you can get to bootmii, you can get a nand dump and the keys and there's probably tools out there to generate a new nand, so then you could just throw that back on the SD card, and then you'd be good to go.

there are no situations
Don't be an idiot. I'll list 3:
1. The bootmii IOS is corrupted as well
2. Your SD card is incompatible with bootmii http://www.wiibrew.org/wiki/BootMii/SD_Card_Compatibility_List
3. You follow this guide. For fucks sake it has two step 5's
