Z e /\ v e 2. i heard from some tat the driver( 'E'drive) tat my windows is installed on mus hav at least 3gb of free space in order for the update installer to work, is it true? if it is true... den wat shld i do? cause my bf2 is not installed in my 'E' drive , and my 'E' drive definitely dun ahv 3gb of space....no matter how much games i uninstall....

Your windows drive (E:) is used to store temp files generated by the patch process, that's why it needs a certain amount of room. You can change the location of the temp files by going to control panel->system->advanced->environment variables, and edit the two lines in the top windows to point to a temp folder on you other drive, and in the bottom windows change the two lines that refer to tmp and temp. When you click on edit you will see something like this "%SystemRoot%\TEMP", just change it to c:\temp (or whichever drive has enough free space - make sure you create the required folders first).

Also as FN_lewrbm69 has suggested, don't just jump up after 30 seconds thinking it has failed, the patch process can take many minutes depending on system configuration, give it a good ten minutes before assuming it has failed.
