    i get this error when i try to install service pack 3 on my boot camp partition

    "there is not enough disk space on F: to install service pack 3. setup requires a minimum of 4 megabytes of free space or if you also want to archive the files for uninstallation, setup requires 4 additional megabytes of free space. free additional space on your hard disk and then try again."

    anyone else get this error ?

    Nope. Worked like a charm for me (I had 23GB free).

    Thank You!

    Thanks for the link!

    EDIT- I see that Boot Camp 2.1 fixes this issue. Wish that Apple would warn you of this issue when you launch the Boot Camp utility to partition your disc...could easily be done through a Software Update.
