The DiscUpdate Disc is a disc which installs an update on a Wii console via the Wii System Menu's update mechanism, and verifies that the update has been installed using a special program ("boot-steve"). This disc was obtained and dumped by NWPlayer123 in late 2018.

The disc installs its contents through an update partition, and the actual program on the disc is just a verification tool, unlike the Movie-Ch Install Disc which installs WADs on the disc itself.

Later versions of the Wii System Menu block this disc by its ID (similar to the Wii Startup Disc ID) for unknown reasons.

History

The disc was initially discovered through an image posted online in the late 2000s showing it alongside the Movie-Ch Install Disc and Wii Backup Disc, then was later discovered to be for sale on GameDealDaily's website.
