The update will resume if it disconnects while downloading.

Guys, guys, you don't have to worry about anything happening while you're downloading the update. It installs after the download, so just make sure you don't turn off or unplug the Wii U during the installation.

This is why you don't program your updater to wipe the current firmware before the new firmware is downloaded.


This

Plus incase of firmware corruption, a secondary base firmware should be stored on the system which activates and restores the system

My motherboard on my pc has this, and its years old

Asus p5w dh deluxe.


How big is your motherboard firmware?
What, your motherboard firmware does not include your PC OS?
Bad motherboard, bad motherboard!

Mine totally bricked while doing the update. It just sat on a screen with the Wii U logo in the corner. Nothing else. Just the logo for 30 minutes. Restarting the system brought up an error that said the system couldn't run.

This.

Nintendo fans can be pretty ignorant when it comes to tech. It's understandable though...they've been living in the past with the wii.

Actually, I was wrong!!! Thanks god!!

The second time I tried restarting it, sat on the Wii U logo for a while, then it actually loaded. But the update hadn't installed, which was interesting. I played Nintendoland (gorgeous!) and when I quit because I was upset not seeing any of Miiverse (and reserving my name ASAP) and wanted to try downloading the update again, it said the update was ready to install. Also odd, but whatever, so it's installing now.
