    The new patch is out.... and I can't play WoW anymore!

    I've downloaded it already, but now when it tried to install, I get a message about not having enough hard drive space. Aaargh.

    Last time I tried redoing Windows, I ended up having to reinstall OS X in the process. Took hours upon hours.

    What should I do? I'm only about 2 gigs away from having enough space.
    There's nothing really I can get rid of....

    This is on my dual boot MP with XP.

    so this is a windows version of wow. i am guessing.
    i am not sure about the windows version. but on the mac. you can copy the wow folder to an external drive then run it from that drive on any other mac. dont know if you can on windows. but you might want to try it out. good luck

    p.s i am downloading the patch too. damn it's massive.

    I have the space on OS X... I'm thinking about installing it on here.

    XP told me that WoW was taking 6 gigs and I have about 11....

    the total size of my wow folder is 5.33 gigs it may need more space just for install of files. (dont know why it would) but i hope it works out for you.
    post how you got it to run ok? good luck

    New intro screen?

    I haven't played in about 6 months (waste of money when all I did was sit in Ironforge and buy and sell on the AH to make a ton of gold...nothing else entertained me anymore...but that's another story), anyway, care to post a pic of the new intro screen? If I ever went back it'd be very disconcerting to log in and not see the familiar swirling portal. :p

    Oh not that. The one with the bar and the random tip is much much different. :D
