    Re: Problems during SF installation

    hmm wish someone else would help..just keep bumping the thread lol
    for now ill keep looking and let you know if i find a reasonable solution.
    theres gotta be one for it somewhere

    edit: another thing to try in the mean time is patch 1.41 after you install bf2 then install SF and 1.41 again if it works.

    what did you do to fix this problem?? i have the same one and have been trying to fix it for ages.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.
    (a one year revive with still no solution)
    srry man, i know all that reading didnt fix your problem, i just thought this was kind of funny
    but i really dont know what to say...you disable security software while installing?
    your forgeting this is EA material...lol you cant just wake up one morning and say i feel like playing SF, you gotta take a day to plan this sort of thing out and and then proceed with your fingers crossed.

    damn, i just found someone with the exact same problem as you but no answers were posted.
    after you installed bf2, did you restart your system before proceeding with SF?

    No. I did a serious search around the forums and saw that a lot but never happened to me.

    does an error come up that says "patching failed" or "You need at least 30 gigs of freespace to install this patch"?
    alot of people seem to have this problem

    Problems during SF installation

    Well I had to reformat a while ago and now I feel like playing SF again, I go to install, I enter my CD Key etc etc and it gets to the patching stage. There is a box that says, "Preparing to patch Bf2 to version 1.1. This may take a few minutes. Please wait" I left it on for over 8 hours and it still didn't finish. Anyone know what I could do, have tried a clean install of Battlefield 2 multiple times.

    ATi X1600Pro
Working...
