NOTE: All non-white Wiis are NOT boot2 compatible
All GCN-less Wiis are NOT boot2 compatible
All Korean Wiis are NOT boot2 compatible
All Taiwanese Wiis are NOT boot2 compatible
All Wiis that cannot read burnt discs are NOT boot2 compatible
ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: If your Wii falls into one of the Compatible ranges and does not allow a Boot2 install, that means at some point in that Wii's life, it was repaired by Nintendo. Nintendo repairs any boot1 bugs in any Wii they recieve for repair, which forever disables Boot2 installation.

Why it is great to have boot2: Boot2 allows the user to boot the Wii from a powered off state right to Bootmii as long as there is what is known as a bootmii folder on the root of the SD. While in the Hackmii Installer, if you clicked the  Prepare the SD card option, Bootmii generated a bootmii folder for you to use in the future if needed. For boot2 users, if Priiloader (another form of brick protection) is ever removed, they can still boot their bricked Wii.

'Bootmii as IOS' users can only access Bootmii from HBC or Priiloader, so if you ever get a brick where you can’t access HBC/Priiloader, you can never recover a brick that requires some sort of NAND injection.
