    When I try to update my XP-Pro OS in my bootcamp partition ( 32Gb ), I get this message:

    " there is not enough disk space on C:WINDOWS\$NTServicePackUninstall$ to install Service Pack 3".

    It goes on to say it needs 4Mg more room and to try archiving or deleting some files...duh, there is sweet f-all installed to 'delete or archive'...its a complete new install.

    Even though there is at least 30+Gb available on the C drive in bootcamp. I have re-done the whole deal from start to stall at least 3 times and no luck...

    Did a search on this forum first but couldn't find any specific examples of my problem.

    Any ideas? There must be an 'uninstall' folder somewhere that is blocking the 'install'...

    Sorry folks, just refined my 'search' and came up with a possible solution...updating my bootcamp from 2.0 to 2.1.
    Should solve the SP3 issue!

    Here's hoping! :eek:
