So, I got the full patch and have had it but I have no idea how to install it. Where should I put it before I run the setup? I always get this BF2 drive could not be found, unable to get available disk space, and that I have to little space on my HD. However, I have over 40GB open on my HD. Could someone post exactly where they put the patch before they ran it? Or could you give me suggestions, or a step by step walkthrough? Thanks

not sure whats realy wrong it sounds like a computer error not a game thing, have you ever cleaned your registry? or clean all the excess crap that builds up everytime you open programs or get on the internet, also just getting crap you dont use off of your pc (even if you have enough space)

not sure if this would solve your prob but it couldnt hurt

If you have BF2 isntalled on a differnt HDD, which you never did say, that might be the problem. I suggest running a cleaner, such as the one windows gives you. Find it Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup. Or this might work Start > Run > cleanmgr.exe

Yes it's likely that the installer can't find the installed path of BF2, you can edit the registry so that it points at the correct path, but that's only for ppl who know what they are doing. Porbably un-installing and re-installing is the best option for ppl who are not comfortable wth the complications of registry editing.

i had the same problem. for some reason, (if u have 2 partitions on your hard drive) the patch seems to install via for example the C drive while BF2 might be on your F (or whatever its called) and the C drive being the one where windows is, it'll have less space, try and clear 1 gb and leave it like that for such issues. (thats what i did and it works)
