Red Lion,

   >901 comes with SP3 preinstalled. Can the install/uninstall files be redirected to an SDCard? <

I have a 900.  I can't seem to find a means to install the uninstall files elsewhere other than the C: drive ... the nearly 8Gb available on my D: drive would certainly hold them.

how much space do you have left on your C drive? I'm assuming you are currently on SP2? I'll try and setup some test kit to match and then try the SP3 install.

Yup, running SP2.

C: drive has 693Mb freespace at the moment.

Thanks for your time,

R.

Man, that's not a lot of space.  I can't wait for the Asus 1000, Acer Aspire One and the MSI Wind!:)

UPDATE:   Problem solved.

The online auto-download and install of SP3 will use the C: drive to unpack/decompress the installation files, whereas by first downloading the entire SP3 file and installing off a flash drive will offer "custom" option including where the temporary decompressed files should go .... I simply chose the D: drive.


The SP3 install went fine although left with only about 150Mb free space on the C: drive, hardly enough room for the system to breathe or accommodate more endless Win XP updates.

Deleting the detritus from myriad downloads (C:\windows\softwaredistribution\download) released about 800Mb.  If happy that SP3 is stable and unlikely to need to roll-back/uninstall it, then deleting the uninstall files means gaining another 700Mb.


I also reinstalled non-system dependent applications (AVG, Skype, CCleaner, Acrobat, etc), onto the D: drive.


Thanks to all that offered assistance,


R.
